  1. Miss Ella you are an inspiration! All of these books are truly wonderful! I have older grandchildren (8-12) so some of these books are perfect for them! I think your program is absolutely astonishing. There is nothing better then getting a child to read and seeing the imagination start working in their minds!

  2. I second Melinda’s comment that you are an inspiration, Ella!
    We have read Mis Matched Moira and it is an adorable book.
    The Hector books look like they would be perfect for my granddaughter who is turning into a real bookworm, YAY!

  3. Thank you so much for the giveaway! I love the ABC Singalong. Even though our son is two, I love collecting books for when he’s older. Helps already having reviews so I know what to give him!!

  5. I am in a very small book club,and enjoy it very much, so I talk about having a junior book club with the grandchildren, and think that would be a terrific idea.

  6. What a wonderful selection of books to read and enjoy. I am amazed at the different types of books you find for us and our children and grandchildren to read and enjoy. I remember your review of Maria and the Pearl and I think it is one book that my granddaughter would love as it is about the ocean and world and getting along with others. You always have a selection of books for most every age group and even for us older slower readers. Thank you again for sharing your love of books with the world.

  7. What a great selection you have pulled together! I am especially interested in the Land of Elyon books, and I have to admit that the covers helped draw me in. It’s remarkable how much cover designs impact the split-second impressions we have of books, isn’t it?

  8. Such a great collection of books. I think my favorite would have to be Erian’s Friend Jeremiah the Owl. I love to give books as gifts.

  11. I can find many ways to share these books in the classroom.

  12. I am always looking for books for my children. You consistently find books that are appealing and appropriate. I see several books in this selection that both children could enjoy. My daughter, who is only 11 months older than my son, loves reading to her brother, and he loves to listen. I’m hoping he’ll eventually get past his fear of reading and jump right in. I have such faith in him…maybe one of these books will break through that shell of fear. michelle_willms(at)

  13. What a great collection! Think I’d want to check out “How to Read Literature Like a Professor” and oh gosh! There are so many to choose from! Thanks for sharing this! My son loves books! So I will definitely be looking at some!

  14. Is it wrong that I am more interested in some of these books for myself instead of my children? I guess a part of it comes from me picking out books for them at the library. I like to grab something new but then that something new is usually something that interests me too.

  15. i would love to add a few books to my children’s library. thank you for what you are doing.

  16. I’ll bet my children would want to read Erian’s Friend Jeremiah the Owl first.

    Comment by Gianna | December 25, 2013 | Reply

  17. I would love to have A B C Sing-a-long. That’s always been one of my grandsons favorite songs.

    Friends and Erian’s Friend Jeremiah the Owl both sound like books he would like. He has a stuffed frog that he likes to carry around!

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  18. This is fantastic. I am really drawn to the Mullet Masters. I have taught young adolescents for a number of years (taking a break for further study at the moment) and am always on the lookout for books that are interesting and hook boys into reading, with positive messages!

  19. Those look like some great books from your reviews. Looks like a lot better reads than things that seem to flood the market nowdays for kids.

  20. Thank you Ella for your blog that inspires a love of books and a love of reading for children. I think the Hector series of books looks fun. I love chapter books that encourage kids to keep reading on! May you have a blessed 2014.

  21. My daughter absolutely loves the ready for chapters books, they are engaging and at the appropriate age level for her.

  22. Wow! It would be tough to only choose 3 of these books. Peace, Locomotion looks pretty intriguing, though!

  23. Thank you! I am always looking for good books for my children. I have bought so many that are horrible reads. Love to see good ones:)

  24. I read up on Amazon about the previews of the books. I think the “hector” books have powerful lessons to be taught. The one book that grabs my attention is “How to Read Literature Like a Professor: For Kids” . who knew their were layers to bringing a story to life. Kudos to your endeavor and loving mission.
