From the Back Cover:

How to Grow a Young Reader is thorough, up-to-date, deeply thoughtful, and thought-generating.”
–Lloyd Alexander, Newbery—award winning author of numerous children’s books, including The High King

“Kathryn and Ranelda not only tantalize you to read the classics you missed but they analyze contemporary books in ways that help you ‘set your mind on things above.’ Enjoy!”
–Jan Johnson, author of Growing Compassionate Kids and When the Soul Listens

“With remarkable breadth and depth, Lindskoog and Hunsicker invite us to the delightful feast of good books, sorting through the classics to the current bestsellers with excellent insight and taste.”
–John Bibee, author of numerous books including The Spirit Flyer series and The Home School Detectives series

About the Author:

Kathryn Lindskoog is a prolific writer, teacher, and literary critic. She is probably best known for her book C. S. Lewis: Mere Christian, an examination of the work of Lewis, who wrote to her, “You know my work better than anyone else I’ve met: certainly better than I do myself.” Among her twenty-one other books are Creative Writing for People Who Can’t Not Write and the three-volume Dante’s Divine Comedy: Journey to Joy. The mother of two grown children, she lives in California with her husband.

Ranelda Mack Hunsicker, a former elementary and high school teacher, is now a freelance writer of books and articles and a staff writer for Chuck Swindoll’s Insight for Living ministry. She has written five books, including In God We Trust: Stories of Faith in American History (with Tim Crater), The Hidden Price of Greatness (with Ray Beeson) and a biography of David Brainerd. She and her husband live in California.
