A new magazine is on the stands called, "Wondertime". It has the look and feel of "Real Simple"...the photography is dreamy and it's sprinkled with wonderful quotes for inspiration.

On page 147, there is a terrific article by Daniel Pinkwater entitled "Don't Read Just Anything" and to quote Daniel, "half the story books published are just as mind numbing as bad tv...half of children's books are a disgraceful waste of trees". I couldn't agree with him more. Here is a list of some wonderful, imaginative children's books that I recommend.
