Doc McStuffins: Time for your Checkup! {Giveaway}

My daughter, who is almost 3, has been noticing the color of people’s skin and I have been starting to wonder if she’s timid around darker skinned people or if I am misinterpreting her reactions.

Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band are ‘Fantastico!’ {Giveaway}
