Did you know kids enjoy reading more when they get to pick their own books? While choosing a book can be tricky, you can help your child find their “just right” book by offering titles and authors that have a track record of pleasing kids. Some of my kids’ favorites were found by looking at book lists from trusted folks. Here are some resources that are sure to help you find perfect elementary school books!
What’s your child’s favorite book?
