We’ve enjoyed being a part of the Random House Read & Play Summer Fun Community and chatting with moms about their favorite books, how they encourage their children to read and the way they can use books to discuss difficult topics like bullying. We also talked about how much we treasure the time spent reading with our children– whether it’s snuggled up in bed, cuddling on the couch or sitting at the kitchen table. Reading with our children sets them up for educational success, but moms treasure children’s books because they strengthen our bond with our children.

In Mexico, the old and new world meet. Rural traditions exist alongside modern expressions, European charm is intertwined with native roots, and bustling urban squares lead into the beautiful countryside. My friends from Mexico embody this vibrancy and beauty. So do the fall children’s clothes from Tea Collection, full of unexpected pops of colors, bold graphic motifs, and clever touches.
Tea Collection sent me a sampling of clothes from their new Mexico-inspired line and asked me to style outfits for my children. And they are offering three of my readers $100 Gift Cards to Tea Collection so they can do the same…
