In response to Book Title Suggestions: for Kids!!, written by Karen R on December 03, 1997 at 18:17:53
] Mean Old Aunt Karen has decided to buy the kiddies BOOKS this year. After Thanksgiving's chit chat with the kids, I am thoroughly disgusted....
] Anyway, I'd like your help for (1) a boy, aged 13, who knows absolutely nothing if it doesn't have to do with sports and (2) girls, aged 9 and 11. For the girls, I had thought of getting maybe the book and the video of a Bronte or an Austen...but are they tooo young to enjoy?
] Thanks so much...I look forward to suggestions from this erudite group.
One book which I think transcends gender lines is The Black Stallion.
The girls might appreciate Judy Blume. I know she's not classic canon, but I think she does write "classic" young adult novels.
Aunt Becca decided a few weeks ago to tuck books into the X-mas packages of 2 nephews and 3 nieces, ranging in age from 3 to 12. I may utilize some of the suggestions above. They're great.
