My name is Mandy, my personal journal is faerieface.
I started this community, because I'm a Mom who loves reading to my kids!
I thought it would be fun and informative to have a community where other Moms (and Dads, too) could come give their opinion about the books they've read to their children.
Guidelines I'd prefer to keep it fairly simple, in the form of rating each book on a 1-5 star scale:
***** (5) stars = terrific book, you'd definitely buy it or give it as a gift!
**** (4) stars = a very good book, one you'd borrow again from the library or possibly buy.
*** (3) stars = a good book, you wouldn't buy it, but you would borrow it again.
** (2) stars = take it or leave it - not a bad book, but not a good one either.
* (1) star = don't waste your time - you would not recommend this book to others.
Now, of course, not everyone is going to agree with another person's rating - so I encourage thoughtful and considerate discussion. No drama though, please. If another member gives your favourite book one star, don't jump on them - remember, these are opinions - we all have our own and they are bound to clash from time to time!
