Overview

A love for reading is one of the most precious gifts that we can give children. It nurtures their imagination and creativity, lets them explore other worlds, and opens their minds to new truths and knowledge in appealing, inspiring ways. But how can we sort through thousands of children's books to discover the really worthwhile ones?

Elizabeth Wilson offers us a newly revised, comprehensive guide to the very best in children's literature. Just as in the original volume, she comments on the tone and content of excellently written, captivating books in over two dozen subject areas. Hundreds of new titles have been added while retaining timeless classics and modern favorites-all of which respect traditional values. So that no matter what the children's ages are or whether they love fact or fiction, you can trust these books to share things that you can believe in and kids will delight in.

As an educator, I have urged parents to read aloud to their children to help them love to read. This author, Elizabeth Wilson, knows how to find books that will capture the interest of children and move them to say, "Don't stop now! Please read one more chapter, Mom!" This book has been the best help as we encouraged our children to be enthusiastic lifelong readers. Elizabeth Wilson recommends exciting books that we still can easily find through Barnes and Noble or in our public libraries. Our children are now in their 20's, but we are planning to give them a copy of "Books Children Love" as they have children.
