A great little book full of age appropriate book lists to encourage a love of reading in young children and as a family. I found that the book list contained a lot of American titles which is fine, but a local equivalent or a more universal list would have been helpful.more
Honey for a Child’s Heart is a lovely book that emphasizes the importance of reading for children and families. The first section reviews why reading is essential and how to go about making books a daily part of family life. The second section is a series of book lists for various ages, genres, and occasions. There are several other books in the series including Honey for a Teen's Heart and Honey for a Woman's Heart. Be aware that while this book is wonderfully wise, friendly, and nonjudgmental, it was written by a Christian author is intended for that audience. Its content, philosophy, and encouraging advice, though, would be helpful to any reader interested in children’s literature, parenting, and family development.more
Excellent book about choosing and reading books for your children, with a Christian flavor. I learned a lot about why humor and fantasy is important to children. Last 1/3 of the book is a bibliography of books suggestions witn reviews based on age and topic. Good ideas for using books to teach about God.more
