How to Find Books Kids Will Love
Ever wandered into a store or the library, looking for a book to give a child? A book they will love?
You find rows of shelves. Full of books. So many options yet you feel completely unsure which book to pick.
What if you could quickly glance at a list of great books for kids? You’ve probably discovered these options exist online … except they are really large with long, long lists of books. Too difficult to sort through, too long to be helpful.
I felt one way to solve this problem would be to create a different kind of list:
- One that would introduce you to the great authors, illustrators and publishers of kids books.
- One you could reference while shopping and sort by age of child and reading level, type of book, or interest.
- One that would help you find books that are loved by kids as well as “the experts”.
Welcome to The Bookshelf ?
It’s a place where you can browse the books on my shelf. And not just the books that I’ve chosen for myself and my kids, but books that I’ve vetted out with other children, and books that are well-respected by experts.
You won’t find all of the possible great books that are out there. That would be too overwhelming … there’s just too many to recommend :).
Instead you’ll find a carefully selected group of books, representing the authors, illustrators and publishers who are creating the best kids books available.
Browse The Bookshelf to find a select group of recommended books for each age and reading level.
The Bookshelf can help you:
- Select books as gifts
- Feel confident you are selecting books your kids will enjoy
- Discover the best authors, illustrator and books available in the world of children’s literature
Books are organized in three main ways.
Search by exploring these main categories to get started. You can also explore books by their tags – look for publishers, authors, main themes and more to help you find books your kids love!
You can also search by authors, illustrators, publishers and topics using the tags.
I’ve taken a lot of time to create The Bookshelf for you. It’s intended to be an easy photo resource that you can reference on your phone while shopping in brick-and-mortar shops, and on your computer while shopping online.
