Silver Spring, Md, November 30, 2012 – Storytime is a long held tradition in many households. Whether it is a handful of favorites read right before bed, stories read in the morning, or scattered throughout the day, millions of parents read to their children. It is valuable time spent together and helps instill an early love of books and reading in little ones.
But what about those books that are read? What are they? Everyone has a few treasured favorites from their own childhood. But what about the rest? What about the books you do not remember that may be worthy of your child’s shelf? What about the new books?
There are those few favorite characters that get a lot of attention, but there are hundreds published every year that slide under the radar or go completely unnoticed. Without spending countless hours wading through piles of books at the bookstore or library, how does a parent find the best new books to add to their story time library?
Little Books For Little Hands is here to meet that need. This column is going to be completely dedicated to everything picture books. Each week we will have a new review or round-up of titles. While we will try to focus on the best books out there, not all reviews will be positive since we are trying to provide an honest critique of the material being presented. Please keep in mind, just as all reviews are, the information provided is simply one perspective.
We hope you find some helpful suggestions and are able to grow your child’s library. Check back every week for the latest ideas for your storytime.
