Dr. Toughlove’s Book Club


I’ve decided that if Oprah, Reese Witherspoon and Jenna Bush Hager can have book club selections, so can Dr. Toughlove!

Dr. Toughlove loves a relatively new book entitled The Day You Begin by Jacqueline Woodson. It is a touching story how children feel different from their peers for a variety of reasons and encourages children to be brave enough to share their stories even when they feel like an outsider. The Day You Begin imparts many of the same themes that are expressed in Talking Buddies, Jamal and Me and Playground Heroes. A great book for kids aged 5-8.
