Top Ten Books I’d Give To Kids Who Don’t Read
I’m changing this week’s theme a little because I had my mum ask me this question just a few days ago, a colleague of hers has a daughter in middle school and she wanted some recs. So here’s an edited list of Very Important formative reading.
The Ballad of Lucy Whipple & The Midwife’s Apprentice by Karen Cushman
Ronia, the Robber’s Daughter & Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott • Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh
Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli • Princess Academy by Shannon Hale
Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer • Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver
Oh, right… and Harry Potter isn’t on the list because this girl had already read it, it would have been an obvious rec otherwise.
What are your recs? Any important book that I missed?
