Gladys Hunt is a fantastic writer. I loved her Honey for a Child's Heart and purchased this
because I was so convinced about this author's talent.
She did not disappoint.

Sadly, what was disappointing was the way the book was put together.
The cover is fine, the inside however is not so beautiful to the eye.
The pages have a shine to them. The quality of the printing of the pages
is poor. It has the look of an old Xerox machine, almost blurred, fuzzy at times.
This is the first book I have ordered that was fulfilled by Amazon.

I can say this because the copy I have of Honey for a Child's Heart, I purchased in the states.
The cover is lovely as well as the pages in the book. There is a difference in the feel and look of the pages
when one compares the two books by the same author.
Not sure why this is the case, but it is disappointing and makes me hesitant to purchase something else furnished
by Amazon.
Disappointed in Books' quality

Love this book! 14 Sept. 2007
By Cricket - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Both myself and my husband have enjoyed this book and "Honey for a Child's Heart". We have not yet read "Honey for a Teen's Heart", but it is on the shelf waiting for us when we are ready, and our daughter is closer to her teen years. The descriptions of the books she recommends are great for deciding if the book is something you might be interested in, yet she and her friends, do not ruin the stories for you. This is a great book, highly recommended for Christian families, but anyone can benefit from the awesome books on her lists. Her encourangement to make reading a wonderful manner in which to connect with those you love, is of great importance more now than ever. Please write, "Honey for a Man's Heart"!! Thankfully, many of the women's book recommendations are suitable for a man as well.

Not what I'd hoped 20 Mar. 2012
By homeschooler - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved Honey for A Child's Heart. It revolutionized reading for my children. I used it as a book list for all of our library trips. Because it was written with such authority, I always felt confident in my book choices for my kids. I was expecting Honey for a Woman's Heart to follow a similar format, but it doesn't. I was disappointed that the book lists were sort of sprinkled through the book, and written by so many different people. I was hoping for the big book list organized by topic. I have often picked up this book looking for a reading suggestion, but for some reason I have rarely come away with a book idea I was excited about.

A must have for any Christian Woman who reads! 26 May 2009
By Anne - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are like me and love to read, but have found that at times you pick up a book and then get taken by surprise because you realize the book has content that you realize it isn't wise to set before your eyes and mind, then this is a wonderful book for you to get.

Gladys Hunt first talks about reading itself--why women do read and why it's important for us to read! It was refreshing, convicting, and encouraging to me. My husband is always encouraging me to read more--rather than watch television =)

Then she talks about the different genres of fiction and the authors that are worth reading. Scattered throughout the book, she has lists of books submitted by acquaintances and friends of hers. I think that a lot of Christian women stick to Christian inspirational fiction because it is lighthearted and they feel they can trust what the book is going to be about and that it's going to have a happy ending. But, Gladys Hunt has suggestions for all sorts of books that are worth reading--and I would say even important to read because they help us see outside of ourselves and understand the world better.

I highly recommend this book! The other two books in the series: Honey for a Teen's Heart, and Honey for a Child's Heart are also very worthy of reading. She is not extreme in her views and takes a very balanced protective, but not sheltering view of what children and teens should and should not read.

A "must have" book for book lovers 7 Jan. 2010
By Brenda N. - Published on
Format: Paperback
I keep this book in a small stack of favorite books beside my bed. It is the kind of book one can read through at one time or come back for a chapter here and there.

The real value in this book is it comes from a "Christian" perspective but brings so many wonderful authors and books one would never find if they stuck to the Christian shelves at the bookstore.

While I found everything Mrs. Hunt recommended to be excellent, I was rather surprised by the recommendations by some of the guest readers. Just use a little more discernment when reading those titles if you prefer books with no language or, ummm... uncomfortable situations for Christian ladies.

Otherwise, this is the best "books about books" I've ever read.

inspiring book 18 May 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have 'honey for a childs heart' and couldn't resist buying this for my kindle. It did not disappoint. I love reading all of the side notes too from other book lovers, who leave recommendations. I loved this book so much that I just bought the book for my aunt for her birthday. I recommend it to all of my friends. It inspires me to keep reading good books!
