Wading through the thousands of children’s books available today is a daunting task.  Keeping up with what your child is reading can be just as hard.

Because I have read so many books, people ask me for book suggestions for boys, or for book suggestions for girls, or for book suggestions for their family to read aloud.

I started writing book reviews to remember what books I have read, which books my children have enjoyed, and what I think of the popular children’s books – the best-selling children’s books today.

Here at CultivatingReaders.com, you will find a mother’s perspective on a book your child is reading, suggestions of books your child would enjoy, and books your whole family will enjoy reading out loud together.

And those of you who enjoy giving books as gifts (my most favorite gift – as a child and as an adult!), here is a great place to find the best books for the child in your life.
