Kid Books


It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations--something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own.

If you have any suggestions for good Children's reads leave a comment. If you have a great book that would be better for them when their older, please make a little note of that. I have a long list of books I haven't added them all, I've only started with ones we can read int he next year or so.
