My Guest Post On The Children's Book Review Blog


My cousin’s daughter just had her first baby and besides buying something from the registry, I always send new parents a bunch of books to begin a child’s library.  Our family has dozens of favorites that we read over and over again. I have kept many books from my own childhood to share with my children and now my grandchildren—all of us have really beautiful home libraries. Sadly, many of my books are so old and out of print, I will concentrate on the books I share with my grandchildren.

Want to know which books I recommended? Click here to find out and check back this week as I highlight each book!
