    Nathaniel Bluedorn, one of the authors of The Fallacy Detective, wrote this book. It is a list of the books his mom read to his siblings and him when he was growing up--with some additions by his brothers, sisters, and him. At the beginning of the book, he gives a very short explanation about the books included and what children gain from hearing stories. One interesting thing to note is that all of the books included in this list are fiction.

    As I read through the list, I enjoyed reading the book descriptions and seeing what books were included. I found more than a few that I look forward to reading with our children in the future. As my husband and I discussed the list, I brought up a few that I thought were missing. My husband pointed out to me that he didn't think the books I mentioned would be good for reading aloud. I think this is because there are some books when savored and read alone, one can get lost in the book differently than when it is read aloud in the presence of others. It is a rare list that includes many books that I haven't heard of and I'll be honest, this book had several books that I'll be purchasing to read to my children. This was quite a pleasant surprise to me! The descriptions included made me curious about many of the books. I appreciated particularly that they were rated by age range at which they were appropriate. A simple, 1/2/3 system, not specific grade levels. Most families have multiple children and ages that they are reading to, so I think this would be very helpful. For personal reading, Honey for a Teen's Heart also rates books by both age and maturity level with similar guidelines. I have found this to be very helpful with my advanced readers.

    This book is a welcome addition to our homeschooling reference books and is going to occupy a revered spot alongside my two faithful reference books by Gladys Hunt (Honey for a Child's Heart and Honey for a Teen's Heart). I love both of these books and they are two of essential books I'd recommend to homeschoolers because of the author's discussions of reading, book descriptions, and book lists. But, Hand that Rocks the Cradle: 400 Classic Books for Children is an important companion because reading aloud and reading independently are different!

    Please note that I received a copy of this book from the author for review, but that these opinions are all my own.
