Wild Things and Castles in the Sky: A Guide to Choosing the Best Books for Children (Paperback)
Wild Things and Castles in the Sky: A Guide to Choosing the Best Books for Children gives the reader over 40 essays that examine specific types of children's books and offer suggestions in each category. Among the topics covered are: imagination, faith, classic literature, middle school books, race, fantasy, contemporary children's books, Shakespeare, art history, Newbery books, young adult novels, poetry, and more. Curated and edited by Leslie and Carey Bustard with Th a Rosenburg (a mother-daughter team and a children's books blogger), Wild Things and Castles in the Sky will encourage and envision parents, grandparents, teachers, and friends--to know the power of a good story and to share it with a child they love.
