Are you sometimes at a loss at what books you should be choosing for your children?  Read for the Heart contains chapters about picture books, golden age classics, fairy tales, history, biography, poetry and more.  And the first four chapters contain discussions on how to begin reading and how to use the book.  There is a section at the end of the book that lists Caldecott Medalists, Newberry Medalists, plus others.

Sarah Clarkson is a freelance writer and blogger who is working on a children’s novel.  She travels with Whole Heart Ministries.  When reading this book you will know her love for books and reading.

Our Experience: I really enjoy reading books and I want to be able to pass on the love of literature to my children, so I was really excited to receive this book.  As soon as I got it in the mail I sat down to read it and study it.  

I have read too many books to remember since first I began reading and this book is excellent for helping to guide me in picking books both for me to read to my children and for them to read to themselves.

My favorite chapter in this book was, “Music, Art and Nature.”  This chapter had a lot of useful books/CD’s for us to use during school.  I was really excited that our local library system had the items so we were able to check them out.

This is a book I am going to keep on hand for many years to come.  I am going to make sure my children read it when they are older.
