Find your next Parenting & Families read

Do you absolutely adore family memoirs, and often find yourself choking up at the end? Did you reread your copy of What to Expect until it was dog-eared beyond belief? Are you addicted to parenting advice columns? Well, look no further for your next fix — it’s right here in the parenting and families section of Reedsy Discovery.

These indie parenting and family books tell incredible stories you wouldn’t necessarily find on mainstream shelves, with often hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking results. You’ll find yourself empathizing hard with the tales and tips given here, as all these books have something fundamental in common: the persistence and power of family, whatever form it might take.

For the best parenting and family books, follow the genre’s top reviewers right here on Discovery. And if you’re inclined to tell them how much their work moved you, take to the comments section — you might just make a new parent friend or two!
