To Give You a Little Break From the Stress of A New School Year, Travis Denning Reads From His Favorite Children's Book

Virtual Story Time With Your Favorite Country Artists

September 10, 2020

It's the week after Labor Day, which means summer has officially ended and a  new school year has begun. Teachers, students, and even parents have had to adapt to the new challenges presented this year at schools whether it is for in-person or remote learning. Technical issues have been an obstacle, as well as adjusting to a new way of learning. It has not been an easy transition for anyone.

We give all the educators, kids, and parents so much credit for trying to adapt and create a new normal within their homes or in the school halls.

This school year will be crazy and unprecedented and when you're feeling overwhelmed and needing to take a break to clear your mind, reading a good book is one of the best ways to re-focus. Reading with your children as a family could also help them relax, while also taking them on an awesome fictional journey. Reading aloud is very beneficial for your kids' development and can also help you take a minute to focus on a great plot or your favorite characters and forget about the other stressors in your life.

We had up and coming country artist, Travis Denning sit down with us and read an expert from his favorite book, White Fang. This is a great book to finish reading together as a family and if you are looking for more awesome children's novels check out the list below.
