This is a fun book to read for: parents with children at home, readers, teachers, librarians, other bibliophiles. It answers many questions that I encountered when my children were younger and it includes many well thought out and well written chapters which stand alone as fine essays. There are also lists: books that read aloud, internet sites, and more.

This book has been so much more than I had imagined. I thought it was simply a guide to picking out good books for my children but it's way beyond that! It has inspired me to read to my kids daily, multiple times a day; it has truly opened my eyes to the importance of books (it's much more than what you'd think!) and developing a love for reading. I always knew reading to my kids is good and important but this book really went beyond what I knew. This is definitely going to be included in baby shower gifts from now on and I've been recommending it to my friends and family left and right. A MUST read!
