For Sir Son, age 15
- Mutiny, A Novel of The Bounty, by John Boyne. (I have started reading this one. I am only on page two, because you should never read when a 15 wants to talk to you. So far 😀 I am liking it.)
- Octavian Nothing, Vol 2, by M. T. Anderson. As I was typing this I realized this is vol. 2. I’ll have to get vol. 1 first. duh…
- Secret Soldiers, by Philips Gerard
For the oldest girl.
Warriors ug, I am sick of her reading these things. She isn’t moving on to something else, so I am going to take time today and make a list of what she can read this summer. Warriors is banned from our home for a while. 🙂
Updated to add: We went to the library with a list of books from Honey For A Child’s Heart. The sad things is that most of the books are not readily available at our library. I think I requested eight. I did get these (plus a few more that I don’t want to dig from the bucket to retrieve):
- One More River by Lynne Reid Banks
- The High King by Lloyd Alexander
For The Peas.
- Buster by Denise Fleming
- The Day-Off Machine by John Himmelman
- Lo-Jack and the Pirates, by William H. Hooks
- all the small poems and fourteen more by Valerie Worth
- The Show-and-Tell Frog by Joanne Oppenhelm
- Wake Me in Spring by James Preller
- The Perfect Pony by Corinne Demas
- Tippy-Tippy-Tippy, Hide! by Candace Fleming
- The Everything Kids cookbook by Sandra K. Nissenberg
For the Mom.
- An Outdoor Guide t Bartram’s Travels by Charles d. Spornick
- Honey For A Woman’s Heart by Gladys Hunt
- Honey for A Child’s Heart by Gladys Hunt (fourth edition 🙂 )
After going to the library, I realized I do not have enough grade appropriate books for my 4th grader. I’ll have to look at Read Aloud Handbook and Honey For a Child’s Heart to get a nice list of books.
For more reading lists go to The Happy Housewife. 🙂
