‘Tea’ for All Ages

Lisa Von Drasek: Early Word Kids

Over at the Barnes and Noble Review, you’ll find my “Books for Kids: A Scouting Report, 2008.”  It gives suggestions on how to buy books for kids you don’t know very well (a common problem at this time of the year) and includes my picks of child-pleasing titles published in ’08.

Heads-up for January
