Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
.Davis surveys more than 1000 titles and includes a detailed review, a photo of the full-color book jacket, the original date of publication, the publisher, and any award information. The categories are broad and filled with old and new classics, series titles, innovative format books, nonfiction and reference, poetry, and other topics. Categories are organized by age, subject, or reading level and are alphabetical by author. There are bonus pages with essays from famous authors and illustrators writing about their craft and their childhood, giving insight into how they became who they are today. A chronological list of Caldecott, Newbery, and Coretta Scott King Award winners and a combined author and title index round out the volume. It would make a spectacular gift for any parent of a young child. It can be their guide to choosing the right book at the right time-sort of like having their very own librarian by their side. A solid choice for parenting shelves.—Renee McGrath, Nassau Library System, Uniondale, NY

    This is one of my favorite resources. I own a children's bookstore, and I give it to each of my new employees to get them up to speed on all the important authors/illustrators. Great selection of books, as well as thoughtful descriptions.

    As a relatively new grandmother, I knew the books that my own children loved, but am using this wonderful book to help me discover those good ones that have been written since my own children were little. When my two year old granddaughter saw the book and wanted me to read it to her, she was happy to see some of the books she already had, and told me she wanted some others she saw in it. Now I have a great guide for just that very thing! I am so very happy this good book is out there.

    I wish I would've had this resource when my children were smaller but it will still be such a great resource for teachers as well as moms and dads.  I already know of some new parents who will benefit from this and I plan to buy more for future gifts.  I highly recommend this!

    How I wish this book had been available when my boys were young!

    How I wish this book had been available when my boys were young! But I have plenty of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who will be getting this book from me; it is the perfect new baby gift and a great reference for all families! I've already bought 4, and now that I have seen it and read through it – I'm going back to order a few more. Highly recommended!!!
