Five Books Every Parent Should Know

  1. “The Rights of the Reader.”  Written by Daniel Pennac and illustrated by Quentin Blake.  We’ve written several times about how much we love Pennac’s ode to reading aloud.  If you need a reason to read to your child, this is the book you need.
  2. “Between Parent and Child.” Written by Haim Ginott. At CommuniTEAs througout the year, several of our teachers recommended “Between Parent and Child” for parents.
  3. How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk.  Written by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish.
  4. The Whole Brain Child. Written by Daniel J. Segel and Tina Payne Bryson
  5. It’s Not the Stork.  Written by Robie H. Harris and illustrated by Michael Emberly.  This is a terrific reference for parents needing help having “The Talk.”  Keep it on your bookshelf for help with a difficult or awkward question or let your child explore it as they begin to be curious about reproductive systems.


And a bonus recommendation: The Wheaton Montessori School Parent Handbook.  It’s a page-turner!
