A list of children's books that are charming, both for the little person and the parent. Love this little reading nook.
Great tips for parents to help kids choose "just right books." Most important perhaps is to let them try what they are dying to read. Nothing kills motivation like denying a kid the books s/he really wants to read (even if they end up needing a little help--that's just a great chance for shared reading).
