The Book Tree: A Christian Reference for Children's Literature

$19.00
SKU: FC-203

Want good books to read for your children? Look no further.

Literary habits naturally give way to literary affections. Once upon a time, a carpenter entered a forest and happened upon a wolf wearing a feathered cap. Quick—whose side are you on? If you don't know, we suggest reading a hearty round of fairy tales. Stories provide a roadmap for life. This is because stories are life. But oftentimes it's easiest to understand where we are when we can look through other eyes—from the perspective of someone else, living somewhere else, somewhen else. The Book Tree is a list of books to explore and try out on your children. This list focuses on books that are well-written, reader friendly, ethical, visually appealing, and accessible.

For those beginning to read for the first time or those beginning to read again, The Book Tree will drop golden apples in your lap, until you can climb high enough to pick for yourself.

What People Are Saying:

"In a day and age when reading good books has never been of greater need for our children, parents and teachers owe Elizabeth McCallum and Jane Scott a deep debt of gratitude for the wonderful service they have provided by compiling this updated second edition of their book. It is a mandatory companion for any home or school." -Patch Blakey, Executive Director, Association of Classical & Christian Schools

"This new edition of The Book Tree is a valuable resource for either professional or personal users." -Donna W. Bowling, Christian Library Journal

"This book will most certainly appeal to that breed apart--all those who nurture literary affections....How appropriate that a mother and her daughter—Elizabeth McCallum and Jan Scott--should have given us such a delectable treat....I think you'll find that their accurate descriptions, careful recommendations, and cogent insights will prove to be as delightful as they will be invaluable." -George Grant, pastor and author

Reader Reviews:

"An extremely solid reference!" -Beth

"An excellent reference book for the Christian family who wants to find intelligent books for their kids to read, but that are clean." -Kristine

"I love this book. It I a well composed book list for preschool to high school. An excellent guide for any teacher or parent." -a reader

"I bought this for my daughter to use with my grandchildren, ages 5, 7, and 9, after I met the author at our church. It sounded like a great reference book to have for choosing books to read with the children. So I ordered it from Amazon.... When [my daughter] received it, she sent me an email to tell me that she already had it, loved it, and took it to the library with them to help in choosing books. She had been using it for two years. So instead of returning it, I gave it to a friend to help her in choosing books for her children. It is an excellent book." -a reader
