Conscious Kids kits are temporarily unavailable.
We’re refreshing our Conscious Kids kits to add new books and expand the selection of topics. During this process, the kits will be unavailable. If you’re looking for books on a related topic while the new kits are under construction, please reach out to branch staff, try our Book Bundles service, or contact us. Conscious Kids kits will return this summer.
Check back for new kits this summer.
