"...a potentially powerful leveler of family wealth and class may be as simple as engaging in picture-book reading with babies." (From a letter to the editor, The New Yorker, Feb. 2, 2015)
I used this a lot to find good books to read to our home-schooled children. Trelease helped me find Carl Sandburg's The Rootabaga Stories, and turned me on to Daniel Pinkwater, among other wonderful books. His list of good read-aloud books includes the appropriate age level, which is very helpful.
