A Family of Readers

For ParentsThe Book Lover’s Guide to Children’s and Young Adult Literature
by Roger Sutton and Martha Parravano, editors of the Horn Book Magazine

Published 2010.

What a great contribution to librarians and parents this book is. I wished I had read it when I started the LitKidz blog. It puts into words what I only intuited about what makes a great children’s book. I learned so much reading it, even starting with board books, which serve a purpose. The authors have years and years of experience reviewing children’s literature. However the book is not just their opinion. It is also filled with essays by authors and other experts in the field. If you have a wishlist for Santa, I’d add this to the adults in your life, especially if they are teachers, parents, or librarians. Available on Amazon or in your library.
