Something is missing from the life of a child who grows up without books:
'Reading awakens imagination and guides thought in a way that television and movies never can. It creates intellectual passion and a capacity to envision that leads to creativity and a thrilling life of the mind. Reading also has the power to transform a home. It not only creates a lasting bond between child and parent, it can make a home a haven from the commotion of frantic schedules and noise that is modern life. Thought becomes possible, conversations thrive, and home becomes a place of nurturing the soul. These experiences leave a lasting mark on the heart of a child and are cherished even more in adulthood.'---Beverly Darnall
Because not all books are great and not all are worth reading, you need a guide to lead you to the treasures. Laura's List is just such a guide. Based on recommendations from a trusted and widely-respected source---Laura Bush---Beverly Darnall has compiled 57 gems in children's literature.
The books are grouped into three categories for easy reference: books for family reading, books for young children, and books for intermediate/independent readers; three books are listed as special comfort books. Each entry includes:A black-and-white photo of the book's coverApproximate reading timeSuggested age rangeA synopsisAn excerptA discussion of the book's themesThings to ponderFun and creative suggestions to help bring the story to lifeQuestions to think about after you readA tip box with suggestions for further reading, trivia, or other bits of information
