From the Back Cover

Help Your Teen Catch the Lifelong Reading Bug.

Honey for a Teen’s Heart spells out how good books can help you and your teenager communicate heart-to-heart about ideas, values, and the various issues of a Christian worldview. Sharing the adventure of a book lets both of you know the same people, see the same sights, face the same choices, and feel the same emotions. Life spills out of books--giving you plenty to talk about!

But Honey for a Teen’s Heart will do more than strengthen the bonds between you and your son or daughter. You’ll also learn how to help your teen catch the reading habit and become a lover of good books. Gladys Hunt’s insights on how to read a book, what to look for in a book, and how to question what you read will challenge you and your teenager alike. It’s training for life! And it’s fabulous preparation for teens entering college.

Including an annotated list of over four hundred books, Honey for a Teen’s Heart gives you expert guidance on the very best books for teens.

Whether your teenager loves to read and or is a reluctant reader, there are suggestions for all types of books they may like. We are (mostly) all readers in the family, but I was more familiar with the popular children's books and not sure about what to suggest from the young adult section at the library. Well, with this book and all of its suggestions and book reviews, it just opens up a whole new world of books to look for (either to buy, or get from the library; AND most of them are available at the library.) The book also talks about the value of reading together as a family, and suggests books that are good for that, as well. Almost any type of interest, there are book suggestions to fit your interest. I found it very informative and not too conservative. I bought this book thinking that only my 14 year old who likes to read would be using it; however, I have found plenty of book suggestions in it that my 12 year old (reluctant reader) enjoys, as well. Is it necessary to buy a book that is full of book suggestions/book reviews? I wasn't sure at first, but its been well worth the purchase price; its told us about a whole world of books that we didn't know were out there. Great book. You'll be glad to have this in your home library.

Our family has used Honey for a Child's Heart with confidence for many years. With teens around, I was glad that a sequel was made to guide us through this time period.

Some of the books recommended are not ones that I would read to or have my children read. I do not think the characters are worth being exposed to but there are a lot of other options from the extensive list that is provided.

I bought this book because I have previously seen "Honey For A Child's Heart" at a Christian book fair. I was disappointed to see so many books mentioned that I wouldn't want my teen to read. Save your money.

++Added later:

I found my notebook that I took notes in for this book. One example of a really poor suggestion on the author's part is a book written by Madeleine L'Engle - "House Like a Lotus." At one point, the auther of "Honey..." writes about how the book is not good and compares it with Judy Bloom's infamous "Forever" (a book which was banned at my school library going up). In the back of the book, "House Like a Lotus" is in her recommended reading section. I was confused.

She also recommends Pear S. Buck's "The Good Earth." I read "The Good Earth" in college. Because of the heavy subject matter I would not recommend it for a teen. The author also recommends the Harry Potter series. Yes, I read these books because I am an adult who is strong in her faith. I did read them so that I wouldn't be considered (to paraphrase author of "Honey...") an ignorant Christian that won't read a book just because of a misunderstood email. I read the "Potter" books and felt as though they glamourized witchcraft. The author says it is the classic good -vs- evil. However, I would argue that it is evil -vs- really evil. The author compares the "Potter" books to those written by Tolkein or C.S. Lewis. The caveat is: Tolkein and C.S. Lewis were men of faith. J.K Rowling stated in an interview that she thought of Dumbledore as a homosexual while writing the books.

These are just a few of the reasons not to trust this book. I am saddened as I really wanted to like "Honey For A Teen's Heart." I have yet to find a book as thorough as this, but that has a higher moral compass. Instead I will rely on word of mouth from trusted friends with a stronger core values.

This book talks about the value of reading as an individual, but also together as a family. It suggests books to read for all different interests. My daughter has always enjoyed reading, but now that she's older and looks for library books from the "young adult" section, we're both happy that there's a resource such as this ("Honey for a Teen's Heart") that can give some guidance with which books to choose. And, many of the books suggested are ones you'll find at the library. We all know how nice it is when a friend suggests a good book to read; well, reading this book is like having a friend suggesting many good books. It has opened up a whole new world of books to read that we didn't know were out there. It's a great book. You'll be glad to have it.

I love all of the books in this series. I recommend them often to other mothers. This particular book for teen reading is very helpful to me as a parent when working with our High School English Department in trying to help direct reading assignments for advanced students. Teachers seem to think that advanced students need to skip right from children's books to adult books. They want our teens to jump into the adult world before they are emotionally mature enough to deal with so much adult content. This book points out that there is much good to be had in the teen reading years!

Love these books! Reading them made me feel as though she was with me guiding me to spend quality time with my daughter. It is so very rewarding finding a good book and reading it with my 12 almost 13 year old daughter. Even her friends when they sleep over ask me to read to them one of the many books we read together. These books have given me great memories and a life I wouldn't have had otherwise. Enjoy!
