I am a self-proclaimed book fiend. Children's literature holds a special place in my heart - I think it is because my mother is an avid book lover herself and taught me from very early on to love classic, well-written children's literature.
Beautiful, enriching illustrations are just a part of the draw of a wonderful children's story, and so most of the books we review here will have gorgeous drawings.
You will not find any lackluster books on this blog. No vulgar Dora, Spongebob or Disney.
We believe in books that beautify the experience of growing up and learning.

The Night Before Christmas illustrated by Jan Brett


The Night Before Christmas is the entire poem by Clement Moore - such a Christmas classic! - illustrated by the flawless Jan Brett.

Wondering: does it get any better than this?

It feels so good to read a story (poem) to the kids in it's unaltered state. So many of the classics are watered down so little kids "get it" but I think they "get" the originals just as well. The coupling of the full poem and these gorgeous illustrations makes for a wonderful reading experience.
