Jayne Marti on
I found this book to be very useful. I generally use the borrow the book from the library and read through it to see if it is suitable for my children. This book covered that for me. The books have been reviewed and sorted into approximate age groups - what a great help! It certainly saves me a lot of time!

Honey for a child's heart has been one of the most helpful books I have purchased as a home schooling Mother. Our family follows the Charlotte Mason method of learning that includes hours and hours of reading great books. Honey for a child's heart is crammed full of lists of books that are categorized by age levels for you and your children to enjoy. Many of the books have won awards in the past and are true classics that still capture hearts today.
