Pardon Me, But What Were You Reading?
I need some suggestions from my literary friends and family (which is pretty much every one of you, actually). We read Emily & Steven a bedtime story each night, of course (usually separately). So far, we've read though the Little House on the Prairie series with Emily, and also the entire Chronicles of Narnia. We also read Anne of Green Gables, but I think she'll enjoy the rest of that series more in a few years, so we've left off with that one for the moment.
Currently, we're reading The Great Brain to her, which my mother-in-law read to Scott & his siblings, and he really loved. I need some suggestions for other things to read her -- you get through books pretty fast at a chapter a night! What did you particularly like for reading at the age of 8 or so?
I also need some suggestions for Steven. He's old enough to move on from picture or one-chapter books, but I don't know what to read to him! Something on the level of Little House, but beyond Farmer Boy, he didn't seem too excited about them. He's, um, quite very strongly really extremely a 6 year old male.
Go ahead, go ahead! Chat amongst yourselves!
