According to a recent census, there are more than 18 million preschoolers in this country, and hopefully all of them have a caring adult who reads to them on a regular basis. Whether you are the parent of a young child, an early primary teacher, a busy nanny, a doting grandparent or simply a wise and loving aunt or uncle, I have written "Beyond Good Night, Moon - 75 Reviews of Classic Books For Young Children" just for you. As the title suggests, it contains concise reviews of classic children's books that are appropriate to be read aloud to little ones. Here are some titles reviewed in the book- (1) Madeline, (2) Clifford, the Small Red Puppy, (3) Jesse Bear, What Will You Wear? (4) Freight Train, (5) Jamberry, (6) Are You My Mother?, (7) Corduroy, (8) Millions of Cats, (9) Bedtime For Frances, (10) The Snowy Day, (11) Little Bear and (12) The Monster at the End of this Book. Joan Louthain Ayer graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Platteville and received her Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Butler University in Indianapolis. She has taught in the public schools in Madison, Wisconsin and in several Indiana communities. She has taught all of the early primary grades and five years of preschool. Joan reviewed children's books for the Tribune-Star newspaper in Terre Haute for 15 years. She and her husband Gordon live in Indianapolis and have been married for 41 years. They have three adult children, a daughter-in-law and three very young grandchildren. All are book-lovers!
