   This message is intended to provide recommendations to the readers of
   soc.culture.jewish of books that either relate to new parenting
   issues, or are suitable for use by children. For childrens books, were
   possible, an age range is given. Note that this list only touches upon
   a small area of the life of a child as it grows from infant to adult.
   Readers should also consult the [6]lifecycle section in the
   [7]Traditional Reading List for even more books.
   
   In general, throughout the reading lists, North American (US/Canada)
   terms are used to refer to the movements of Judaism. Outside of North
   American, Reform is Progressive or Liberal Judaism; Conservative is
   Masorti or Neolog, and Orthodoxy is often just "Judaism". Even with
   this, there are differences in practice, position, and ritual between
   US/Canada Reform and other progressive/liberal movements (such as UK
   Progressive/ Liberal), and between US/Canada Conservative and the
   conservative/Masorti movement elsewhere. Where appropriate, these
   differences will be highlighted.
   
    Other Reading Lists
    
   This isn't the only kids reading list. The following other lists are
   worth examining. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses.
     * Wendy Bett's [8]Bibliography of Jewish Books
       ([9]http://www.armory.com/~web/jbooks.html). This list is good and
       provides annotations, but is very short.
     * Rabbi Amy Scheinerman's [10]Annotated List of Jewish Children's
       Books ([11]http://ezra.mts.jhu.edu/~rabbiars/). This is a very
       extensive annotated list of Jewish books. Unfortunately, most of
       the books on this list are out of print.
     * Lori's Mishmash [12]Children's Book List
       ([13]http://www.geocities.com/CollegePark/6174/jewish-children.htm
       ). This is a very extensive book lists, with lots of synopses.
       Lori also has an Amazon affiliation. The pages may be slow to
       load, as Lori has a graphic for each book.
     * Childrenlit.Com's [14]Themed Reviews of Jewish Interest
       ([15]http://www.childrenslit.com/th_jewishint.html). This is a
       short listing of books of Jewish interest together with a synopsis
       for each book.
     * [16]Jewish Community Library of Los Angeles
       ([17]http://www.jclla.org/). The JCLLA has a large number of
       reading lists available for children.
       
    Where Can I Get The Books
    
   Many of these books are available through general bookstores or
   Judaica bookstores. A list of links to these may be found in the
   [18]sources section of the [19]General Reading List (if you are
   reading this at [20]www.scjfaq.org, you can simply click on the
   "Sources" button in the header navigation bar).
   
   [Amazon Associate] The S.C.J Reading List has established an affiliate
   relationship with Amazon.Com. ([21]http://www.amazon.com/). Now you
   can complete your library and support the continued development of the
   Reading Lists at the same time, for many books on the reading list are
   available through Amazon. For those reading this at
   [22]www.scjfaq.org/rl/ant-intro.html, you can click the link to the
   left to browse Amazon's selections. Alternatively, if you enter Amazon
   using the URL
   [23]http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/redirect-home?tag=socculturejewi
   sh, the reading lists will get credit for your entry. Additionally,
   when you see the Amazon graphic [24][If you were at www.scjfaq.org,
   the graphic would be here] (or "[Buy at Amazon: http:...]") on an
   entry in the reading list, this indicates that the specific book is
   available for purchase at Amazon. Click on the graphic/link to go to
   Amazon and purchase the book.
