About this Book:
Features an extensive bibliography of recommended children's literature and a wealth of tips for parents and teachers on encouraging literacy in kids.
“This book is a fabulous companion for parents wanting to teach certain values or looking to check out books their children might be interested in. It's also great for catechists, Christian educators, Sunday-school teachers, and anyone working with kids and wanting to know what resources are out there to coordinate with topics. If you are interested in how some popular or classic titles coincide with your faith, or want to find a book about just about any topic, this is the perfect reference. I use it for my kids, but also for the religious education classes I teach to 2nd and 8th graders. Easy to read, go as in-depth as you'd like, or skim the surface. Good cross-references and indexes, too, to make it easy to navigate. The author has a down-to-earth style, straight-forward, helpful, and gentle. It never makes it back onto my bookshelf, as I'm always picking out something new and useful for my kids and classes.” —Be Gentle (Chapel Hill, NC), Amazon. com customer review
