No matter how busy you are, no matter how short on time you are, no matter how dirty your house is, no matter how stressed you are...you have time to read, travel, study, talk, dance, paint, write, sing, and wonder each day with your child. All you have to do is stop time. That's right! Stop time...with your child and a picture book...for just 15-minutes a day. Cay Gibson does for reading what Rachael Ray does for cooking.

Apr 9, 2012A Picture Perfect Childhood is a beautiful, wholesome book which is so much more than a book full of lists, as Cay Gibson shares with us, in her unique style, the value of sharing picture books with our children of all ages. Lots of great reviews have already explained why this is such a wonderful book of books. So I would like to just share two areas which are dear to my own heart, reading challenges and cultural diversity. Among her many and varied lists, Cay Gibson includes a section for Teenage Readers, explaining why picture books work for them, along with a list of a dozen books, specially chosen for them. She also has a section for Struggling Readers, with seven books about learning to read. What I find most exciting about the book are the many lists involving cultures within our own country, as well as in other countries. The Black History section features 52 books, along with 23 books listed under Underground Railroad. The Immigration section lists 45 books and Indian Lore... More > 43. There are 33 books listed under China. There are lists for various countries, as well as for each of our states. Christmas Around the World includes 16 books. Around the World and Beyond with Cinderella, which is a list of 34 books, features Cinderella stories from Africa, Appalachia, and the Caribbean; Cajun, Irish and Mexican Cinderella stories; and many more. Whatever your interests and those of your children, this is a book you will want to read, take with you to your library, and even make notations in for future reference. Cay has done the work for us, so that all you have to do is select some of the books from the library or bookseller, and then take 15 minutes a day for “enhancing your child’s imagination and education”.< Less
Feb 7, 2008"TK from Houston's Review" I'm reading "A Picture Perfect Childhood" and it's speaking to my heart! In many ways it is exactly what I needed to help with struggles I've been having with our education journey. I desperately needed something to breath some new life into our learning and your book is rejuvenating me. I'm once again feeling excited and energized about what we're doing and where we are going. I know it is a book that I will go back to over and over again. Thanks so much for writing it!! God Bless you and your family. TK from Houston
