Purpose of this Blog...
My original intent in creating this blog was to provide a resource (and some encouragement) for new moms and dads who want to spend time reading aloud to their children, but may not know where to begin. But it's really also for any adults (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, Godparents, teachers etc.) who have children/teens in their lives and want to help them foster a lifelong relationship with books. You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls...my goal is to help you find the ones that do!

Passing Along the Liebster LOVE
Thank you to the talented, Route 19 Writers, for honoring Good Books For Young Souls with the LIEBSTER BLOG AWARD. [Readers: I'm sure you're asking yourself what exactly that means. Well, the Liebster Award originated in Germany. The word “Liebster” is a term of endearment: “beloved” or, also, "favorite". The idea behind the award is to bring attention to bloggers who have less than 200 followers in order to create new connections and bring attention to these wonderful blogs!]
So here we are! I'd like to bestow the AWARD to five of my favorite/liebster blogs. Keep writing!
1. Kinder Days
2. The Scrumptious Life
3. Brian Sibley: His Blog
4. Sewing by Stephanie
5. Saints and Spinners
These are the rules in accepting the award:
-Add the award image to your blog.
-Thank the giver with a link back to them.
-List your top 5 picks and let them know they've been given an award by leaving a comment on their blog.
-Hope that your followers will spread the love to the blogs you've spotlighted.
