The books children read have a profound impact on their lives and growth. Blomquist, an experienced teacher, helps parents consider some of the most influential titles in history. The Children's Great Books list includes both classic works that were written for children and those stories that, while not written strictly for children, were orally passed on for generations and are foundational for understanding Western culture. These works include Greek and Roman fables, myths, and epics; European legends, sagas, folk stories, and fairy tales; and the Bible. She also provides helpful information for discerning which contemporary influential books are appropriate, or perhaps inappropriate, for one's children. There is also several appendices that are useful for the study of literature at both the elementary and the secondary levels. You'll be encouraged to give your children more time to enjoy children's literature before attempting adult works. 272 pages, softcover.
