My girls and I have been having so much fun reading the Star Darlings book series from Disney.
Star Darlings is the perfect series of books for young readers who need reinforcements when it comes to chasing their dreams and making sure they expressed openly and for everyone to hear. The Star Darlings series encourages young readers to be bold about their hopes and dreams. It outlines the importance of not hiding your dreams and being able to voice them openly with friends and family. Not only should you be open about your dreams but you should be bold; you should shout them from the rooftops.
