from Southeast Wisconsin wrote the following on :
As I progressed through elementary school one thing was constant, the presence of Gladys Huntís ďHoney for a Childís HeartĒ on every teacherís desk. The book was the ďgold standardĒ for selecting classroom read aloud. As a new parent I remember checking out the original 1969 edition from our public library to peruse. After perusing the library copy, I purchased my own, which I am still using 12 years later. ďHoney for a Childís HeartĒ is a guide book for selecting quality childrenís literature for children ages, 0-14 years of age. The author guides the parent through a two-step process in helping to select quality childrenís literature. The first step is titled ďUsing Books to Help Children Grow.Ē The author gives a scope and sequence of what good books do, how to choose good books, how to raise a reader, what makes a good book, the benefits of fantasy, realism, and poetry, the importance of family read aloud time, good books as good teachers, building a family library and using the public library. The second step is titled, ďBest-Loved Books for Children.Ē This section of the book is a book list divided into the following topics: How to Use The Book List, A Childís First Books, Picture Book Classics, More Favorite Picture Books, First Books for Beginning Readers, Classic Childrenís Novels and More Great Books for Intermediate Readers, Stories for Animal Lovers, Historical Novels, Fantasy Novels, Young Adult Novels, Poetry for Pleasure, Nourishing Your Childís Spiritual Life, and A Book List for Special Occasions. As a parent I have found this book to be indispensable resource. I look forward to using the authors other titles, ďHoney for a Teenís HeartĒ and ďHoney for a Womanís Heart.Ē
