    After looking through many book lists I had come to the conclusion that many authors believe children will only read the equivalent of literary junk food (some lists even have recommendations for books with "strong language" or "disturbing images" or "first sexual experiences"); however, I knew that junk food was not what I wanted for my children. After months of off and on searching, I had almost despaired of ever finding a list I approved of - until a friend introduced me to Books to Build On. It was love at first read.

    The book recommendations in Books to Build On are of the highest quality; even the picture book recommendations for young children are often books with stunning artwork done in classical styles. I have used Books to Build On to assist me with library book selection and have been very impressed at the quality of literary food I have been able to bring home to my children. Books to Build On is truly a departure from the sweets and junk food of other book lists; instead E.D. Hirsch has published a list of healthy, organic reading for our children.

    I would highly recommended this book for all parents wishing to raise the quality of their child's reading experience.
