Positivity for children

In a world dominated by gadgets and screens, kids may forget the value of reading and self-care. Jacksonville authors PeTika Tave and her daughter Zandria Bastian are working to change that. They believe in books that spread positivity, encouraging children to embrace and love themselves.

Interested in their books? You can find them here.
