Children's Book Reviews




When my kids were younger, I kept a running blog post of what books we read, really liked and what the boys read on their own as they got older.  It was geared to mostly young children thru the middle grade years. 

It was a good resource for our family and friends to get ideals about books for our kids or as gifts to others. As my kids got older, I ended up thinking the list wasn't needed  so I deleted it. It wasn't until  after I did that, I started to receive requests for it and I really do regret deleting that post.    

As I occasionally still review children's books for publishers I decided to restart the book lists  and will start to add the books my boys have cherished over the years.
