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

About the Author:

The authors are a mother-daughter team. Elizabeth McCallum Marlow (M.A. English, University of Houston) has taught English literature for thirty-five years at the high school and college level. Elizabeth conducts seminars for teachers and parents on various subjects relating to literature and the English curriculum. She is currently writing a series of five textbooks entitled Teaching and Understanding Classical Literature designed to help English teachers and home school mothers teach literature. The manuscript covers teaching techniques and material for classroom settings for grades 9, 10, 11, 12, and AP Literature. The intended audience includes public and private school teachers, home schoolers, and anyone else interested in a review of classical literature. It is detailed enough that it could be incorporated in a college literature circulum. Jane Scott (B.A. English, Covenant College) currently works as independent writer and editorial consultant.

Review:
