NOTE: As Amazon Associates, we are gradually listing new reference material useful to readers and collectors of children's books, a resource we have been unable to find elsewhere. With each Amazon book, you can order directly from this page or go through our full Review Page at no additional cost to you.. Using Amazon Associates allows us to use their thumbnail photos on this page quickly.... we make under $5.00 a year, if that!  We own and use every book from Amazon listed here. We have put on our review pages, additional photos and specific information not on Amazon. We decided to link to Amazon because the comments on new books can be interesting, but, unless you want a brand new book, we suggest purchasing from www.abebooks.com where you will be able to contact the seller and see more accurate listings.
    Some books link directly from our Review Page to authors or private publishers, as with Oak Knoll Books or the Eric Carle Museum. We have no business arrangements with them: we just prefer to purchase books from the people who created them. We hope you will purchase directly from them.  Unlike the "Amazon books" we do not own every one of the private publisher books listed here, but we have used other publications from these well known publishers and authors, and we have trusted their work over the years.
