    created a second page titled "Yourthree additional pages. "Book Suggestions" whichwhere you will see on right hand side of this first paragraph. You can add to the discussion and give suggestions that way or list your ideas on the page itself. (At least I thinkfavorite reading selections for children, "E-Book Suggestions" where you can. Grin.)can list favorite electronic book choices, and "Your Ideas" where you can add your thoughts regarding reading to children.
    II. Selecting Books
    First of all, it's important to know your child's interests when selecting a book or helping them select one. Often times my children will choose some kind of character book because it's familiar to them and I don't think there is anything wrong with that. After all, as adults, how do we select books? We don't walk up to the shelf and think, "Let's see, which topics are the least appealing to me because I want those books." In order to be excited about reading, we pick topics that interest us or subjects we can relate to; children are no different. When I choose books for my children, I look for the type of language used, quality of illustrations, and the story line involved.

    Great wiki! Do you want others to add ideas for books?
    Great idea to add the page for "your suggestions" -- this way you can really turn this wiki into a great Web 2.0 resource for anyone looking for or offering suggestions on children's books. :)
