Well, I'm glad you asked! Because it gives me a great excuse to list my favorite classics of children's literature. For those who don't know, Kolt is a nine year old boy, and a very strong reader. I'm making this book list with him in mind. I'm going to stick affiliate links in here, in the form of cover images, just in case you are interested in any of these but can't find them at your local library.
and it is one of my favorite childhood memories. Mary, Dickon, Colin, the secret garden . . . I remember particularly when Mary gets a skipping rope.
Cheaper by the Dozen by Frank B. Gilbreth -- You got me, I haven't read this one either. But Jacob loves it, and every time I hear it mentioned, it is by people who love it.
I hope you find one (or more!) books that you love here, Kolt! Debra, let me know if any of these work out well.
And for the rest of you, how would you answer Debra's question? What books is this list missing?
