Children's Books To Capture The Imagination
Harry Potter lives in your house, so does a hungry caterpillar, Pooh and a host of other book characters. They are as real to your children as the man walking down the street. That is what makes books so magical. A well written book can transport a child into a different world where they can act out a fantasy and often learn about real life. Harry Potter is a lesson in good and evil, the hungry caterpillar teaches the life cycle of a butterfly.
Research has shown that a child's reading ability is enhanced by the number of books in their house, books that are used, not sitting on a shelf for decoration.
I have made a list of my favorite books for each age group and there are many more I could have added. I have not included any traditional classics, although some in the list have become modern classics. I have included one poetry book, "Where The Sidewalk Ends", if only because the title poem is brilliant. My list changes as good, new books are written, but there is something here for every child.
