Introducing Parenting’s Best Books for Kids


A love of reading is one of the most meaningful gifts you can give your child. Not only is reading a great way to spend time together, but it also provides kids with the crucial communication, critical thinking, and language skills they need for future success, academic and otherwise.  

Parenting recognizes how important it is to make reading fun, and we are here to help. We’ve launched a bookstore! Now, in addition to our great tips for cultivating enthusiasmovercoming reluctance, and more strategies for encouraging a life-long love affair with books, we have created a place to browse books by age, shop from lists of recommendations by experts, enjoy exclusive discounts, and engage with a community of like-minded parents.

To celebrate the launch, we got together with experts from Reach Out and Read and Save the Children, two of the most active literacy advocates in the country, to construct a definitive list of books sure to engage your child whether she’s 6 months or 6 years. Take a look around and let us know what you think.

Plus, today only, take 50% off our favorite children’s classics. Go to to learn more, and take advantage of this limited time offer.
