Reviews - What do customers think about Honey For A Teen's Heart?
Pleased this has been written Aug 14, 2005
Our family has used Honey for a Child's Heart with confidence for many years. With teens around, I was glad that a sequel was made to guide us through this time period.
Some of the books recommended are not ones that I would read to or have my children read. I do not think the characters are worth being exposed to but there are a lot of other options from the extensive list that is provided.
Don't miss this one Jul 21, 2003
This book talks about the value of reading as an individual, but also together as a family. It suggests books to read for all different interests. My daughter has always enjoyed reading, but now that she's older and looks for library books from the "young adult" section, we're both happy that there's a resource such as this ("Honey for a Teen's Heart") that can give some guidance with which books to choose. And, many of the books suggested are ones you'll find at the library. We all know how nice it is when a friend suggests a good book to read; well, reading this book is like having a friend suggesting many good books. It has opened up a whole new world of books to read that we didn't know were out there. It's a great book. You'll be glad to have it.
This is a great book! Jul 14, 2003
Whether your teenager loves to read and or is a reluctant reader, there are suggestions for all types of books they may like. We are (mostly) all readers in the family, but I was more familiar with the popular children's books and not sure about what to suggest from the young adult section at the library. Well, with this book and all of its suggestions and book reviews, it just opens up a whole new world of books to look for (either to buy, or get from the library; AND most of them are available at the library.) The book also talks about the value of reading together as a family, and suggests books that are good for that, as well. Almost any type of interest, there are book suggestions to fit your interest. I found it very informative and not too conservative. I bought this book thinking that only my 14 year old who likes to read would be using it; however, I have found plenty of book suggestions in it that my 12 year old (reluctant reader) enjoys, as well. Is it necessary to buy a book that is full of book suggestions/book reviews? I wasn't sure at first, but its been well worth the purchase price; its told us about a whole world of books that we didn't know were out there. Great book. You'll be glad to have this in your home library.
