A guide by Claudia (Hartford, CT)

Products sampled from this guide:
As a father of 2 and grandfather of 1, I have spent quite a bit of time reading children's books to and with kids. I want my kids and grandkids to love to read and want to read with them to encourage that but sometimes children's books are a little hard to read over and over as an adult. But, there is hope. There are a lot of great children's books out there that adults will enjoy right there with the kids. It is refreshing to enjoy the books I am reading with my grandson and it helps me be a better grandfather to him as I actually enjoy reading with him and will therefor do it more and more enthusiastically at that. I'd read with him anyway but it's great to have fun while I'm doing it!
