READING AHEAD

Here in the Reading Tub® we get books ... lots and lots of books. In every edition of The Wash Rag I have include a list of some of those titles. These are the books that I would stop to thumb through if I saw them on display. Something about them intrigues me and piques my interest. Given the number of books we've received in the last 90 days (somewhere on the order of 150 books), the list is too long to put in the newsletter. So I'm making a change. Beginning this month, I will publish a "Reading Ahead" column for each of our target audiences: 0 to 4, 5 to 8, and 9 to 12. They will arrive with your Book Bag, so stay tuned.

In every edition, I will tell you why the book caught my eye. Just remember: this is our initial reaction, not the actual review.

  3. I've got an eight-year-old daughter and I'm looking forward to watching your lists for suitable reading material. Thanks for doing this!
