Dr. Steven and Deborah Layne wrote this book. Please visit Dr. Layne's site if you want to help to encourage your children to love reading. I am a huge fan now.
The best advice he gave to me as a parent that you can download from his site free here is to schedule a reading night just like a soccer practice or ballet. I am book fool. I host a reader series and never thought of that. Bananas!
What I loved most about this book is that it's multicultural. It is a great geography primer. You learn about Russia, China, Asia, Africa, the Middle East. You learn about fairy tale origin, greek mythology in a way that isn't so overtop an eight-year-old would hate it. Love it!
Robert and Lisa Papp the artists did a wonderful job capturing the glorious beauty that reminds of what a princess should possess. Here are a few pics courtesy of his site.

Welcome to my new blog, Kiddie Books. I have been praying and waiting for a good time to build a blog devoted to mothers who love to read to their children. So in honor of this year's Mommyfest I decided to do it. The blog's layout will change and be complete by June 1. This week you can hang out with me at Christian Fiction Blog or find me chilling at the MommyFest Blog Party.
