From the Inside Flap
The Chinaberry catalog was created when Ann Ruethling became troubled by the violence in many old-fashioned nursery stories and the poor grammar or mediocre plots in newer children's books. Handpicking a hundred high-quality titles a year, she has become an indispensable friend to thousands of parents, and Chinaberry has become a gold standard for its industry.
"Under the Chinaberry Tree celebrates the world of children's books. In warm "one-mother-to-another" prose, Ruethling and her business partner, Patti Pitcher, reflect on the family-first concepts that resonate so strongly with Chinaberry fans and all parents. Exploring the books that have made a difference in their children's lives, the tender experience of reading with children and the moments that make parenting a unique journey, this guide is sure to enrich every family's bookshelf.

While I would recommend the Chinaberry catalog, this book just isn't as good. The organization is confusing and the book recommendations alternate with general advice on parenting. Since books are the authors' strength, it would have made more sense to stick to that topic.
So not the best guide out there, and with fewer suggestions than most, but it does describe about 200 picture books.
The Chinaberry catalog is also a must for ANY parent. Don't buy a single book for your child without looking at this catalog first.
The green typeface can be hard to read and gets very annoying after a few pages. While it can be a good jumping off point for checking books out of the library, you would do just as well by checking their web site.
