Esme Raji Codell has amassed an exuberant treasure trove for parents who want to help their children develop a love of reading. She presents her own theory that interest (finding the right books for the child), integration (using reading as a springboard into other disciplines) and invention (when a child’s unique ideas are inspired by the writing) can make the difference in how a child approaches reading (she also strongly advocates for reading aloud).

Codell offers a simple method for determining whether a book is too difficult while pointing out that kids may listen on a much higher level than they read. Scores of thematic book lists are provided, ranging from topics as diverse as medieval England to dinosaurs or hiccups. Covering a vast spectrum of subjects and authors, this is both a comprehensive and inclusive resource.
