Harold and the Purple Crayon (Pbc 44)
Doesn't get much better than this.
I think this is one of those books that every child should experience. It's picture based (as opposed to text based) so there's a delightful interactive element and the child can rather tell his own tell about Harold as together they follow the purple crayon from page to page...inviting you and your child into the book to explore. So simple, it's rather Zen. And lovely. Must, must, must for ...
Scrambled States of America (HRA392)
I picked this up at the library on impulse for my five-year-old, thinking it looked cute and fun. And it was, and she loved it. The amazing thing is that after a couple of weeks of hearing the book and studying the pictures, she was able to walk to our U.S. map and identify 35 of the states. Not because we set out to teach her, but because the states' personalities are so vivid in the Scrambled ...
Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel
Virginia Lee Burton
A classic you can't knock off its pedestal (or out of its cellar!)
Seventy years after it was first published, this is still one of the first books you should buy for your child. Virginia Lee Burton's classic offers both colorful charcoal sketches and a story that is as relevant today as it was in 1939. After all, every town has a local government official full of thrift and self-importance; machinery is continually being obsoleted even though it still does ...
The Blue Castle: A Novel
L. M. Montgomery
Frederick A. Stokes Co
One of LMM's best - wish it were adapted for film
As beloved as the Ann and Emily series are, I love this book more, because the characters are more dimensional, and adult readers can relate to them. I agree with others that The Blue Castle would translate wonderfully into film. I wish some screenwriter would discover this gem and adapt it for film. Sullivan Entertainment should do this as their next venture.

Amazing amount of good usable information
This book is awesome!! There is so much information available in this book: everything from making soap to making baskets, gardening, building your own home, it is simply amazing. This book is put together very well. It is not a story book, but a topical/reference type book. Meaning you do not need to read the entire book to locate a specific task or piece of information; if you are looking ...
How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?

Owl Moon (Hra333)
Delightful nature book!
this is amoung our top favorite nature books! It shows a son and father enjoying nature together, observing and interacting with nature. Captures my sons attention every time and that is a trick! (3 yrs old, active boy) The book is a story but simple. Very descriptive. Not rhyming but still very simplistic and yet richly detailed. Son has found it a little bit scary as it describes a dark ...

Don and Audrey Wood
Child's Play (International) Ltd
Best Children's book
My son received this as a baby gift ( He is 19 now.) It was the most read book of his toddler years. Quick, delightful bedtime story. I have given it as a gift several times my self. I was so happy to be able to find it on Amazon.
The Glory of Their Times
The Glory of Their Times - Simply Wonderful
Mickey Mantle said he never understood why grown men idolized him and why they would cry at times when they met him. I'm sure he knew why. Because baseball, the game of our youth, and the men who played it, take us back to that wonderful, simple time like nothing else. As our lives fly by baseball can always instantly transport us back to those carefree days. The Glory of Their Times does that ...

Grandkids loved it!
A simple story, simply illustrated, and my two-and four-year-old grandkids loved it! They asked me to read it to them again and again.
The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes
Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
This book was brought to my attention by a dear friend who loves books as I do. She told me this was a special book when she was a child and her children and grandchildren enjoy it as well. Well, now I have a little sweet granddaughter with whom I want to share my love for books. I have also given her 'Make Way for the Ducklings' (we live just south of Boston),'Good Night Moon' a Beatrix Potter ...
Mom of a vivacious little girl
My daughter loved this book ever since I brought it home from the bookstore and we read it that first time. Every chance she gets she wants to "read" it. My daughter knows the verses very well. If I'm reading with her, she doesn't give me the time to finish reading one part before she says "silly sally went to town..." If your child has a hard time focusing and needs bright colorfull pictures ...
Good stories are timeless
I bought this book for my 11 year old grandson and he loved it. He thought the story about Homer Price and the Doughnut machine was the best, but of course we had previously visited Krispy Kreme, and saw their machine, and sampled their doughnuts. I read this story many years ago and have read it since as part of a Read Aloud session.
The Man Who Loved Clowns
June Rae Wood
The best book ever written!
This is the greatest book. Perfect for children of all ages. ITs a heart touching story, and shows how families need to stick together no matter the circumstance. This story is a great example of how no families are perfect. Punky is a wonderful character/person, he touched my life. This book makes you want to smile and cry at the same time. Its an amazing book, don't just take my word for it, go ...
The Little House
Virginia Lee Burton
One of the all-time-great classics of literature for toddlers.
THE LITTLE HOUSE by Virginia Lee Burton is a 40-page book with 22 colored illustrations. Seven of the illustrations are panoramas, and extend from the far left to the far right, in the manner of a two page spread. The illustrations are very simple, and can be copied by many high school students. On the other hand, the author has developed a unique style, where clouds are disclosed as a ...

Laura Ingalls Wilder
great piece of american history
No matter how many times I re-read this series it never gets old. I love this book the best of all in the series and think this should by the final book read b/c "The First Four Years" is simply awful and utterly depressing.
Zin Zin Zin!: A Violin
Delightful and musical.
It has evocative lyrical descriptions of musical instruments, with flowing warm and musical illustrations. Our six year old grandchild who loves music, loved reading this.
Must Read for Fantasy Book Lovers
I read this book probably about 18 years ago when I was in my early teens. I have no idea why but was drawn to this series as well as Watership Down and the Redwall series by Brian Jacques. All brilliant books in their own way. There is something about these books which really draws you in and you develop strong emotions towards each of the characters as they are so well portrayed. All I can ...
