Dec 012020

Whew!  So that election took about 30 years longer than expected. And it’s still being contested in the early part of December. Voters on both sides expected a landslide and we got…a trickle. But do not fear, because as Martin Luther King, Jr. told us, “the arc of history is long, but it bends towards justice.” We’re bending now.  Ever so slowly, we’re bending. 

We want to help your kids build their empathy muscles for bending that arc by working them out with great books. The Best of Jambo 2020 will help build your empathy for building the best tomorrow we can. Here are our choices for the best books we have sent (or will send) this year.  

If you missed them in the boxes, you can still order a Best of Bundle right now! The Best of Jambo 2020 Bundles will ship out after receiving the order so you don’t have to wait for a membership box!
