The Gift of Reading
The holidays are a special time of year for millions of people around the world. But regardless of our faith or beliefs, it tends to give way to the need for each of us to take a moment and recenter values that, in the end, are shared by all of us. Values we want to pass down to future generations, and those near and dear to us. We therefore propose this series of French and English titles that, first and foremost, speak of generosity, sharing, helping each other, and an openness of heart and spirit. And seeing as winter is finally here, we’ve also included two charming recommendations to welcome the season.
