What the Kids are Reading.... 
These books are among our children's favorites. We're pretty sure you'll be able to find something new here that your kids might also like. The list is sorted by recommended age. Remember though, that many children enjoy books before and after the recommended age. 

The list is linked directly to Amazon.com, so you can see a description and some reviews..and order on-line. 

Of course, these titles wouldn't be on our list if we didn't think they were good selections for our children.
