Book Recommendation: The Evergreen Wood

The kids and I are enjoying this wonderful book:

It is an adaptation of The Pilgrim's Progress for kids.  The story and illustrations are lovely for children and I like that I understand it better than the real Pilgrim's Progress!  Brian, at two and a half, is not really engaging with it; Elizabeth, at six, is completely captivated and always asks to read just one more chapter.  Save this one for first grade or older.

I learned about The Evergreen Wood from this book:

Read for the Heart: Whole Books for WholeHearted Families

Sarah Clarkson's collection of book suggestions from many literary genres is invaluable!  If you do not own this book, you want to read quality literature to your kids, and you don't know where to go beyond what you enjoyed as a child, start here!  I've found Sarah's age suggestions for each book to be most helpful as I pick picture and chapter books to read with the kids.  I have yet to be disappointed by one of her recommendations!
