Most teens already know what wealth and just-plain-fun books contain. What is sometimes missing is the encouragement to make time for reading in the middle of a busy life.

In this book, Hunt addresses teens themselves, discussing how to read a book, what makes a good book, what questions to ask, and how to discern which books are worth spending the time to read. The book reviews in the bibliography are much longer than those in Honey for a Child's Heart, since they are designed to make teens want to read the books. Unrevised version
