Reviews on Books

Daddy Long Legs by Jean Webster

I just read a lovely old book, originally written in 1912, called Daddy Long Legs by Jean Webster.  It's recommended for 11 and up, which is about right.  It's about an orphaned girl and a benefactor that pays for her college tuition.  The entire book is a collection of letters from her to the benefactor.  It's got humor, and some social lessons, as well as a happy, somewhat surprise ending.  I highly recommend it.  Lisa

 Series of book for young readers by USBORNE

I wanted to share this series of book for young readers . I know interesting especially boys to books that  they would enjoy is sometimes a challenge.  I found the  print large  easy to read to or the kids to read them selves. Brining classic stories to the younger reader. It has not been easy to find books that are able to interest the young reader in content inspire them to read more for pleasure. My son loves adventure and these books capture his interest in reading at least the ones we've read so far. I hope your family finds them worthy too. Tuesdi
