Heather over at Mom 2 Mom Connection has a great post up today called Beverly Cleary, the Storyteller. Go read it.
I have been working up a post about why I like Amanda to read kids' classics, which I define as a book published at least twenty years ago. I think about what I read when I was a child, and I make it available to her. Additionally, we've discovered many older books, published in the fifties and even before. When I post it later this week, I'll tell why I find these books so appealing (and a few things to watch for).
Since I brought it up, if you'd like to list some books or authors that fall into this category (like Beverly Cleary and Laura Ingalls Wilder), I will include them in a comprehensive list of these types of books for kids. When I post, I'll tell why I find these books so appealing (and a few things to watch for).
