WFMW – New books for the new year (for you AND your child)

By megret | January 6, 2009 at 10:30 pm | 10 comments | WFMW

I bet I’m not the only one who has added “read more books” to my New Year’s resolutions list! (Actually, it’s a staple resolution for me every year.)

If you are growing weary of “reading with the masses,” or if you just want to reach back into the classic, tried-and-true lists of books sure to please, I have two wonderful book recommendations that you should by all means purchase first.

For yourself, check out Honey for a Woman’s Heart. In it you’ll find a wealth of book recommendations for any type of genre you can imagine….and oldies, as well, such as Pilgrim’s Progress, Oliver Twist, and Walking Across Egypt. Nonfiction suggestions, poetry anthologies, and even Christian books are given equal attention.

In Honey for a Child’s Heart, you’ll find a wealth of unforgettable title suggestions for the little ones you read to (or who are avid readers themselves). From the Narnia Chronicles to Then There Were Five to My Friend Flicka, there’s something for every child’s taste….illustrated books to pore over as well as chapter books to enjoy little by little (our 4-year-old is loving having a chapter a night read to him!).

These Zondervan-published volumes will not disappoint…they’ll become handy reference tools that you’ll grab off the bookshelf several times a year.

    I soooo love these books, and the book she wrote, Honey for a Teen’s Heart, also. I agree, you can’t go wrong with her recommendations. Jim Trelease’s Read-Aloud Handbook is another super resource when you’re looking for children’s books.
