Post your RA successes for older kids. ISO good read alouds for boys 14 and 9.

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking nonfiction, just because much of their assigned and independent reading is fiction. We're doing moderns this year. Successful RAs from the past, some with them together, some alone:


Watership Down

Carry On Mr. Bowditch

Complete Grimms Fairy Tales

For older:

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (highly recommended)

Nurtured by Love (a fave of mine-obscure)

Outliers, The Story of Success



I've tackled Little Men with the 9 yo, but he really lost interest in the book, not sure why. Ideas please! Post your RA successes with older kids
