A Mother's List of Books - Theresa Fagan
By Theresa Fagan
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.

This is a wonderful resource for readers, parents, librarians, etc. My mom had an older version of this list a long time ago, and we were both so pleased to see it updated and made available online for purchase! Such a wonderful list of books! I appreciated the short notes with each book, especially the recommended age and topic. I found myself wishing more information was given for each book, but that would require extensive work and space. The additional notes and lists in the back of the book were also very helpful. So glad this resource is made available for purchase! Thank you!

So glad to have a copy of this book. It's been so hard to find quality reading material for my kids. We can look through this list together to find something for them to read, and I don't have to worry about it having questionable material. Thanks!
Really worth it

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

If you are a busy parent who doesn't have time to pre-read every book your child picks up, and you want your kids to fall in love with truth, goodness, and beauty - and the joy of reading! - this is for you! I'm so happy I found this, and I have recommended it to all my friends. What a gift to all parents everywhere!

Mrs. Fagan is my new best friend! I can take her book with me every time I go to the library and encourage my kids to choose the books she has reviewed!
