#1, the absolute best book we've read as a family is The Wind in the Willows. After that, some of our favorite authors are:


Hilda van Stockum: her Bantry Bay series and Five for Victory series were particularly enjoyed.

Marguerite Henry, especially if you have a horse-lover in the family.


everything on Wendi's list :001_smile:
