But philosophy is just a bunch of babble without application.
So you’re convinced you want to read living books, avoid twaddle, and bathe your OTB child in rich language, right?
But maybe you don’t know where to begin.
I’ve got just the list for you…
Over the last few years, I have been working on a series of booklists for the “well-read” child. That’s right…a reasonable amount of twaddle-free, beautiful books sifted through by quality, not quantity. “Well-read” might sound a little snobbish or elitist but all it really means is that your child will get to feast on some of the best literature out there and you won’t have to rack your brain or spend hours scouring the internet to figure out what books fit that criteria. I’ve done all the heavy lifting for you.
There are lots of booklists floating around on Pinterest you could choose from but my Pre-School Booklist for the Well-Read Child will help you prioritize your reading. It will remove the burden of trying to decide which books are absolutely worth your time and which books are great options if you have time. And, it will free you from the anxiety of finishing a list in one year ;).
The Pre-School Booklist for the Well-Read Child is perfect for children age newborn (yes, newborn) to around age five. You can read all of their favorites over and over without losing your mind because these are books that you will actually enjoy reading and re-reading to your child!
Don’t forget to grab a copy of Around the Year Booklist for the Well-Read Child which was created with the family in mind and includes selections for Pre-School, 1st – 3rd Year and 4th – 6th Year organized by holiday or season, all in one place.
When your child is ready, be sure to check out Booklist for the Well-Read Child: 1st – 3rd Year and Booklist for the Well-Read Child: 4th – 6th Year, as well.
