THE SEASON'S BURNING QUESTION

“How do I choose a book as a gift for a kid

I don’t know very well or see very often?"

Lisa Von Drasek, former librarian for New York’s

Bank Street College of Education, answers that

question on EarlyWord: "For young children,

we want picture books with writing that sings,

outstanding art that expands on the words,

and stories or information that are developmentally

appropriate." See all of Lisa's picks "for the family

with the new baby, the grandchildren who live

across the country, the godchildren who have

arrived for the weekend and to amaze your nieces and

nephews with your superior intuitive abilities, chosen

from the thousands of children’s books published this year."

 

SANTA CAME EARLY THIS YEAR

And he delivered the best present ever—a

lovely review of THE TOOTH MOUSE in

The New York Times! Pamela Paul

calls the book "charming" and says,

"these mice could even teach the tooth fairy

 a thing or two." Read the entire review here.
