This is the 3rd edition of A Mother's List of Books. It includes everything from the first two editions, plus the additional 200 titles that used to be printed and included. These are books that delight, inform and inspire. A few are great, and some are just pure fun. They all respect the dignity of persons, and of marriage and family. The brief comments about the books indicate their content but don’t begin to convey their beauty, depth or wit. Age levels are approximate. Many of the books belong in two, even three age groups. The list includes many lesser known books that are out of print but that are well worth looking for.

Absolutely worth the price. Every bookworm who thinks they've exhausted all the good books will find themselves delighted.

Fantastic overview of great literature for your family to read
Posted by Mrs C on 25th Aug 2016
I purchased a first edition version of this book and now the second edition of "A Mother's List of Books" by Theresa Fagan from Casa Maria.
"A Mother's List of Books" is exactly what the title suggests - a fantastic overview and list of books to aid the discerning mother in choosing quality literature for her children. The list is broken into age groups. This new edition also includes a list for very young children, six months to two years which I found helpful. Better than even "Honey for A Child's Heart", this is my go-to literary guide for our children and our homeschooling.
