The Book Tree
A Christian Reference for Children’s Literature
Once upon a time, a carpenter entered a forest and happened upon a wolf wearing a feathered cap. Quick–whose side are you on? If you don’t know, we suggest reading a hearty round of fairy tales.
Stories provide a roadmap for life. This is because stories are life. But oftentimes it’s easiest to understand where we are when we can look through other eyes–from the perspective of someone else, living somewhere else, some when else.
For those beginning to read for the first time or those beginning to read again, The Book Tree will drop golden apples in your lap, until you can climb high enough to pick for yourself.
“In a day and age when reading good books has never been of greater need for our children, parents and teachers owe Elizabeth McCallum and Jane Scott a deep debt of gratitude for the wonderful service they have provided by compiling this updated second edition of their book. It is a mandatory companion for any home or school.”
