Great children's books spark a love of learning!

Great children's books are like magic, sparking a love of reading and learning.  Average books can have the opposite effect. Children who are repeatedly exposed to uninspired children's books eventually find reading uninspiring. Picking the right children's books matters! Few things are more powerful in generating excitement about a subject than a great children's book!  Books start the adventure!

This website is a labor of love, created by three school teachers who use children's books every day in their own classrooms. We'd love to hear from you! We've combed the shelves for
the best books, but we know we've missed some. If you don't see your favorite, let us know!
