Onekahakaha Beach Park

A nice, quiet, keiki-friendly beach. Pretty rocky but some white, or at least yellow, sand. Quiet during the week. Bathrooms and showers. Lifeguard on duty on weekends and holidays. 4 miles east of downtown.

Kid Books

matchstick kidbooks: children’s literature, emphasizing books that promote child development

This is a list I began compiling years ago, when I knew several families with children ranging in age from 2 through mid-adolescence.

It’s essentially all the books that won at least one award.

The categories correspond to a range of children’s ages.
For younger ages, the higher number is the average age of child who would enjoy reading the book, while the lower number is the age of the child who would enjoy listening to the book being read.
Reading level is different for every child, so the numbers given for each category may be above or below your child’s level.

Book recommendations for 3 to 5 year olds
