This week I want to share two of our favorite books in the Dismondy family library You may be shocked when I tell you they were written by Madonna. Yes, THE Madonna. The eighties pop start who performed songs like Papa Don’t Preach, Like a Prayer and Material Girl. Madonna has written five children’s books.

The first one that I recommend you borrow or purchase is Mr. Peabody’s Apples. This book is a tale of honesty and paints a beautiful picture of the irrevocable damage that rumors can cause.

In the book, The English Roses, empathy is the lesson that comes from a story that highlights the pettiness that school girls tend to portray.

I hope you find time this weekend to visit your local library and check out some books!
