Parent Resources

Looking to our Little Feet community, our Hudson Valley community, as well as our national/international community, we often find lovely resources for families.  Below are some recommended ones we’d like to share.

Additionally, we have an extensive Little Feet Lending Library for families, including parenting books along with a preschool collection featuring topics such as new baby, grief, illness, divorce, disabilities and gender identity. For older children, we have the O’Connor collection featuring topics such as race, human rights, equality and peace. Please let us know if you would like to check out our titles for loan.
