Children's Books


true classics

As we use it, the phrase "children's books" covers a lot of ground. It includes books that we like to read to Dave, books that Dave might be interested in when he's one or two or three, books that Dave might actually be able to read when he's six or seven, and books that Jane and I read when we were children and still enjoy today. Someday I might be able to group them by appropriate age; until then, let the reader beware!

Here are the children's books we've reviewed in ex libris reviews to date. You may see some duplicates; that indicates that we reviewed the book more than once.
