Is it really that important to pick "the best"?

Isn't it just important to get books into the hands of children?  Any old book will do?

Definitely not! While fantastic children's books can spark a love of reading and learning, average or boring books can, sadly, have the opposite effect. Children who are repeatedly exposed to uninspired children's books eventually find reading, well, uninspiring. Quality matters! Picking the right children's books matters! Let us help you find just the right fit to create that spark. That's why we've created this site--to help teachers and parents get great children's books in the hands of their children.

We sincerely hope our lists of great kids' books will help you in picking books for your kids or planning your classroom curriculum.

Enjoy the books!
