February Book List - Heritage

February’s theme is HERITAGE. Knowing where we come from is important to many of us, as is the ability to create a safe, open space where we can share our stories. These books include a diverse range of characters and the opportunity to talk about family history, whether we know it pretty well or want to find out!
