WHY THIS BOOKLIST?

Finally, brothers, let your minds be filled with everything that is true, everything that is honourable, everything that is upright and pure, everything that we love and admire — with whatever is good and praiseworthy.

[Philippians 4:8]

WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL ABOUT STORIES? A story is best way to teach a lesson. It’s the best way to appeal to someone’s heart. It’s the best way to make an impact. We are trying to do all of these things with our children.

WE NEED TO BE SELECTIVE about what our children are reading. I believe that children remember stories and they identify with characters. I think it’s important that we choose books wisely in order to teach our children character through stories.

In the books below you should not find BAD WORDS that I don’t want my children to use. I used to change these bad words when reading stories aloud to toddlers but now that I have an actual reader in the house I’m more careful. You should not find things like bad attitudes or snarkiness or fighting in the books below. If you do and one slipped by me, please let me know.

THERE ARE SOOOO MANY AMAZING BOKS OUT THERE! I cannot own them all. But I can weed out the ones that do NOT fit in the with the values I am trying to teach our children.

This list is my attempt to make a comprehensive list of the books we love.

    Really enjoyed the list! I didn’t see Frog and Toad, and the Olivia books by Ian Falconer.

      For some reason my kids never liked Frog & Toad books. My oldest never did even as I tried to reintroduce them. My middle so far doesn’t either. It probably has to do w/ the grumpiness? My kids really like happy tales. I may be the only one but we don’t like Olivia books either. I am really really picky about books and I think there is a bit of “sarcasm” or “negativity” in them that we don’t care for. We prefer to saturate our minds with the behaviors we want to imitate. My kids are really practical (not sure if they are all that way) but when we read something like Olivia saying “I could paint that in 5 minutes” my kids say…”why?” “why did she say that?” and they don’t understand! And, then to show painting on walls in the house…AH! I always preferred to keep those kinds of ideas out of my kids’ heads. I didn’t want to tempt them by introducing those idea. I’m probably the only one but I am just super picky. Tell me more though! I love the suggestions and I hope I didn’t offend!!!!
