Stuff I’ve seen my kids reading recently:
The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge
The Saturdays and other Melendy books by Elizabeth Enright.
175 Amazing Nature Experiments by G. Morgan. (Oh that’s just freaky. I went to Amazon to check on the exact title of this book; Beanie’s been carrying it around all week. I knew it was called something about nature experiments. When I found the right one and clicked on its page, Amazon informed me that “you purchased this item on July 13, 1999.” I don’t know what’s freakier: that Amazon knows my buying history so intimately, or that it was ten years ago that I bought that book.)
The Art Lesson by Tomie de Paola.
The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald.
Peter Pan by James Barrie.
The Crochet Handbook.
Plus the usual assortment of Warriors books, Agatha Christie, Showcase Presents, and Muse magazine.
Betsy and Tacy Go Over the Big Hill
Life in These Parts
‘You don’t put your life into books. You find it there.’
Speaking of comics!
