Take a little time to relax and read

This Thanksgiving season we wanted to take some time out to talk about one of Teen with a Dream’s favorite things, books! It is one of our favorite things to put in our Signature Chemo Day Care Bags. Here is a reason why reading aloud to your child creates a soothing and safe environment and allows them to be transported wherever the pages take them. Reading aloud can also be a great distractor when waiting for tests or doctor appointments. Even for older children like teenagers reading to them while they are getting their tests can be a helpful tool. So in honor of thanksgiving we have a few books on thankfulness that would make perfect. 

First Shel Silverstein’s classic The Giving Tree a book about a little boy and the kindness of a tree is heart warming and entertaining at the same time makes for great reading or reading aloud.
Andy and the Lion by James Daugherty shows thankfulness when Andy removes a thorn from his paw and wins his friendship and thankfulness for life all because he helped others. 
An Awesome Book of Thanks by Dallas Clayton is a Seuess-esque book that will inspire readers to appreciate big and small things.
