By Pamela Paul and Maria Russo
Every bibliophile can remember the first time they fell in love with the printed word; the first time they glimpsed the Green Gables, met the inhabitants of Narnia, or discovered where the wild things really are. But how do you pass that love on to your children? Competition for kids’ attention is fiercer than ever, but if you take care, you can raise them to love books and open worlds of opportunities for themselves. Pamela Paul oversees all book coverage at the New York Times and Maria Russo is the newspaper’s children’s books editor, so they bring a refreshingly unacademic approach to subject offering practical tips from their experience on the front lines of kids’ lit. This book is a particularly handy reference for new parents.
