It’s a big milestone when your children finally start reading books on their own just for fun.  But, my son quickly followed in my footsteps and started checking out stacks of books to read.  So, how can I get some idea of what he’s reading and if there are topics I need to discuss with him or ask him to avoid reading?

Well these two awesome moms have put together reviews and ratings for lots of children and teen books on The Literate Mother website

They have personally read each book and given it a 0 to 5 rating for:

  1. language
  2. violence
  3. sexual content
  4. adult themes

They want to help parents and teacher be informed about book content so they can suggest, discourage, or be prepared to discuss reading material.  Thank you!

    Hi Chris,

    If you’re looking for star ratings and reviews on books, your best bet is Amazon. Most popular books have comments and ratings by people who have read the book. Here is a link to the selection of Top Children’s Books on Amazon.

    You can also click on certain age ranges on the left of the page to browse.

    Hope that helps.
