*The Enhancing Young Minds Blog Book Study, Beyond The Pages (Langworthy), will begin Feb. 1st! What makes it unique? It’s open to educators, providers, parents, and anyone whose decisions impact young children. There are also guest content experts who will lend their voices to facilitate each week’s discussion!
