Susan in TN Posted July 10, 2009 Share Posted July 10, 2009 (edited) At the end of every school year we give our kids some nice quality, hardcover books to start them in building their own libraries. Usually 3, or sometimes more in a set (like The Chronicles of Narnia, or the Hobbit and LoTR). We usually buy fiction, but a non-fiction here or there won't hurt. So, what literature would you want to make sure your kids won't leave home (graduate) without? eta: these are what we've given so far to 7th gr. ds, 4th gr. dd, & K dd A Bad Beginning (Lemony Snicket #1) The Reptile Room (Lemony Snicket #2) The Hobbit The Lord of the Rings The Chronicless of Narnia At the Back of the North Wind (MacDonald) The Princess and the Goblin (MacDonald) Five Children and It Watership Down Tales of Beedle the Bard In Freedom's Cause (Henty) Tales from the Perilous Realm (Tolkien) Black Beauty Light Princess (MacDonald) Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats Wind in the Willows Little House in the Big Woods Little House on the Prairie Anne of Green Gables (100th anniv. Ed.) A Little Princess Betsy & Tacy Treasury A Hole is to Dig (what's with the font?) Edited July 10, 2009 by Susan in TN Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
