    My girls and I have thoroughly enjoyed the good and the beautiful books. I have watched my daughters react to these books and I have learned: when they finish a book holding it close to them, wishing the story would go on, that is a a book worthy of our shelf. All the books we have read, published by the GATB, fill that criteria!

    After watching the videos about good and beautiful books and trying to read more uplifting literature in our home, we did a complete overhaul of our home library and weeded out anything that didn’t fit with our new criteria. Thank you for helping make such a positive change in our home and family!

    Thank you for pulling together your booklist. It has been a great resource in choosing the right books for my young avid reader.

    Great discussion, so hard to get them to slow down these days and just dive into a good book that’s age appropriate but also healthy for them and not just more ‘junk food’ for their busy minds!
