Hello Parents,

A former colleague of mine passed along information about an App called Abound
Parenting <https://aboundparenting.com/download-the-app/>which is free for
one year if you download in October (link here

The app gives busy parents tips and conversation starters to help build
early literacy skills and links to library book recommendations, targeting
parents of children 0-6.

I have nothing to gain personally from parents downloading the app-- just
wanted to share a (currently) free resource that I think can be very
valuable for many of us busy parents of young children!

Best regards,

Abound Parenting
