Book Suggestions

Books can be one of the best way to share your child’s many experiences, whether it be the first day of school, losing a tooth or learning how to count. This site is configured to help you identify books based on many of the important developmental milestones of your child’s life.

These brief reviews, based on my own criteria and years of experience reviewing and selecting children's books, will be your guide in "feeding" your child the best literary suggestions. I hope these books will encourage you to read with your child, to read to your child, or to read alongside your child as you facilitate his/her literacy development.
