Twenty by Jenny invites you to build your child's library one book at a time.

This website began as a way to recommend 20 classics, in each of four age groups, to get you started. 
Each month, a complimentary email newsletter recommends a brand new book in each age group so you can continue to expand your selections.

With more than 9,000 children's books published each year, it's hard to judge the best. Twenty by Jenny will recommend the top picks for you.
