    " I refer to this book often especially if i'm heading to the library and don't know what to check out for the kids. This gives you book lists by age! Very helpful. "

    " This book was mysteriously sent to me by an amazon seller with 'The Hero With a Thousand Faces' by Joseph Campbell. I didn't order it and it came with no explanation, so I had to read it. Obviously. It turns out that the purpose of 'Honey for A Child's Heart' is to promote reading to children as a positive and worthwhile pastime. Cool. Too bad the message is ruined by Hunt's view that being gay is an "unacceptable" and "inappropriate" subject for books or discussions with children. She also denounces divorce and tragic events as unsuitable, and condemns video games and television. That all this is delivered with the sickly sweet insistence of someone who is "speaking as a mother", and therefore knows best, repels me all the more. This isn't a gentle Christian guidebook, this is an insulting text that reduces Christian values to hatred and ignorance. It wasn't even researched well, she constantly uses brackets to display her idiocy: "Lemony Snicket (fictitious name?)"...ERGH "
