    Some children do learn that early ,I learned as early as you, as did my son. My daughter was much later. We have since learned of something called hyperlexia: reading too soon! Yes, it is a difficulty! Google it… It is perfectly OK and normal to learn to read at 5 or 6. Just keep introducing books! Good luck

    I love the idea of collecting books by theme for children. I am very fond of collecting children books by age and grade but never thought of collecting by theme. It is a good idea. Definately your website will help me collecting books for my students.

    Hello! Love your site! I am traveling to Australia next month and was hoping to identify children’s books to take with me from the USA that they don’t have there. Any suggestions on where I could track down a list or find this info? Thanks! Amanda

    I LOVE your Reading through History series; however, some of the links appear to not be working. (From Women’s Suffrage to Post WWII) I would love to be able to access these lists. Your site is great!

  7. I would really like to send you some new traditionally published children’s books to review, but I do not have your address. Where can I send them? thanks

    Thank you so much for your Reading through History series! I am going into our 2nd year of homeschooling, but now it’s 1st grade and history has never thrilled me…probably the way I was taught it! I am so excited to utilize your books from our library…than you, thank you, thank you!!
