We decided to include a section for parents in our “readers by age” to share books about reading and children’s literature, and also to introduce some great reads about children at different ages, too.  There are some engaging collections of essays and short stories about the experience of having daughters, sons, toddler, twins, or teens:  quick reads to capture your attention when you have a few minutes to spare, and longer books that you’ll look forward to returning to.  From poems and plays to informative non-fiction pieces, we hope the suggestions in this category will grow with your continued input.
