Books To Grow By.
Keeshan, Bob, Comp.
Compiled by Bob Keeshan, TV's "Captain Kangaroo," this book is a reference guide for books appropriate for children through age eight. Books are organized alphabetically, according to children's age group, and include Bob Keeshan's comments as well as author, publisher, publishing date, and price. Each entry also lists values the book teaches, awards the book has won, and other books written by that author. Special features in the book include an introduction from Keeshan on the importance of stories as a way of teaching values to children; guidelines for choosing books for different age ranges; and indexes of titles, ages, and values.
