As I progressed through elementary school one thing was constant the presence of Gladys Hunt�s �Honey for a Child�s Heart� on every teacher�s desk The book was the �gold standard� 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 �Honey for a Child�s Heart� is a guide book for selecting quality children�s literature for children ages 0-14 years of age The author guides the parent through a two-step process in helping to select quality children�s literature The first step is titled �Using Books to Help Children Grow� 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 �Best-Loved Books for Children� This section of the book is a book list divided into the following topics: How to Use The Book List A Child�s First Books Picture Book Classics More Favorite Picture Books First Books for Beginning Readers Classic Children�s Novels and More Great Books for Intermediate Readers Stories for Animal Lovers Historical Novels Fantasy Novels Young Adult Novels Poetry for Pleasure Nourishing Your Child�s 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 �Honey for a Teen�s Heart� and �Honey for a Woman�s Heart�

Honey for a Child's Heart is a must have for the homeschooling family It breaks down books by age and type and explains why she chose each book based on its merit I needed a guide to figure out which books were acceptable quality literature worth reading that would instill a love of literature in my kids without having to read each of the books all my kids were reading in advance This book did exactly that It put a tool into my hands that allowed me to be comfortable choosing books without personally reading them when time to do so was an issue I can choose knowing that I have been informed of the positive and negative points of the recommended books
