Literary affections naturally give way to literary habits. Families who love to read will find the time to read -- the distractions of life are simply crowded out .... Such families invariably become inveterate and unapologetic list makers. There are lists of books that must be read. There are lists of books that must be reread. There are lists of books that must be read by others. This book will most certainly appeal to that breed apart. It will sate even the most inveterate of list makers. How appropriate that a mother and her daughter -- Elizabeth McCallum and Jane Scott -- should have given us such a delectable treat. They have provided a guide to the best of children's literature serviceable for both veteran reading families and those just beginning their great journey of the imagination. I think you'll find that their accurate descriptions, careful recommendations, and cogent insights will prove to be as delightful as it will be invaluable in your own family. -- George Grant, from the foreword
