Tuesdays Treasure {26} - Honey for a Child's Heart

 Welcome to Tuesdays Treasures.  I started these posts as a way of sharing great books in honour of my friend in New Zealand who would arrive with the treasures she had unearthed at her weekly trip to the library!

There are so many wonderful books out there hiding on shelves so I invite you to blog about a book on your shelf, one you're reading or one you found at the library and add your post to Learning All the Time Favourite Resource Link Up

This week ...

  • Format: Paperback
  • Number of Pages: 251
  • Publishers: Zondervan
  • Publication Date: 
  • ISBN: 978-0-310-24246-8
  • Author Gladys Hunt
  • Illustrator
When I first started home schooling this was one of the first books I invested in.  I loved the idea of twaddle free living books but did not have enough experience to pick them.  This book became an invaluable resource along with my Sonlight Catalog.

Personally I do not endorse every book that Gladys has listed but as a family we have certainly enjoyed a good many.

The book is divided into two parts:

Part One: Using Books to Help Children Grow
    Part Two: Best-Loved Books for Children.

    1. So glad you posted about this book! I have it and love it, yet I was sitting here pondering what book to read to the girls next. Hmmm...maybe I should take a peek at Honey for a Child's Heart for ideas!! My goodness, why didn't I think of that on my own?!

      I will add that as relaxed homeschoolers, this book has been a fantastic resource in helping us find living books that support the girls' interests while inspiring a love for reading.

      1. You are welcome Jenn. It's been ages since I used this book and found it yesterday ! About to read it again and be inspired to bless Sir N :)

    4. Chareen, thanks for linking up with this great suggestion! I borrowed this book from our library system more than a year ago and really enjoyed it. I need to maybe borrow it again to look through for some more suggestions. Thanks for the reminder!
