Children's Book List Link

Many readers contributed to this wonderful list of favorite children's and young adult titles compiled by Island Sparrow. (That's Prince Edward Island--for all us Anne of Green Gables fans!)

We've enjoyed so many of these--but have so many to look forward to still!

Right now, our read-aloud is The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. I'm amazed at how much my kids are enjoying it, since I frequently have to stop and explain some of Twain's peculiarly folksy, flowery, delightful passages. They're motivated, though, since they're in the musical right now, to compare their script with the book, and both with the movie version. (Hmmm, that would make an interesting compare/contrast writing assignment....)
