I looking to replace a title with an updated title.
The title needed replaced is called Books Kids Love: A easy guide to great
children's books and shared reading, published by Parker and Fox Productions
in
1988. Our title has been used many years and is a great source however, I
would love to find a update.
The content of the video is, how to select books for children ages birth to
11 years. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
