Early on at Exodus, we decided we wanted to bring in a large selection of quality classics and children's books. Honey for a Child's Heart is the reference we turned to first. It is simply one of the best guides we've found for parents who want to choose the best books for their children.
The book is split into two sections. The first section offers a series of chapters discussing books—their value in life, what makes a good book, fantasy and realism, and more. The second section launches into a great book list, broken down by several age groups and somewhat by genre.
A good book is a gateway into a wider world of wonder, beauty, delight, and adventure. But children don't stumble onto the best books by themselves. They need a parent's help. Author Gladys Hunt discusses everything from how to choose good books for your children to encouraging them to be avid readers.
Completely revised and updated to keep pace with the ever-changing world of children's literature, this fourth edition of Honey for a Child's Heart reflects Hunt's broad tastes in books. Rooted in experience, her suggestions will enrich the cultural and spiritual life of your home. She shows how to:
- Understand the importance of reading aloud to children
- Give your children a large view of the world, of truth, of goodness
- Encourage each child's imagination and good use of language
- Teach your children about life's choices
- Find the best books for your children
Illustrated with drawings from dozens of children's favorites, Honey for a Child's Heart includes booklists geared to your child's age and filled with nearly 1,000 long-time favorites, classics, and wonderful new books that will enrich your child's life.
