We are a family of avid readers! Bring on the books!! When Deanie (my oldest) turned 7 I was having a hard time finding books that were challenging enough yet still age appropriate for a young girl. (I’m just not into Junie B. and Magic Treehouse) She is now 8 and Dancy is 6. We have found some delightful series that the girls and I would like to share:
My girls are actually pictured with the author (Wanda Brunstetter) on this homepage! She lovingly makes herself readily available with lots of booksigning locations.
This series is for both boys and girls. My oldest received this set as a Christmas gift and proceeded to devour one book after the other! 🙂 They are GOOD mysteries that really do leave the young reader “figuring it out” untill the very end! Thank you Stephen and Susie! *side note* the site that I ordered these books are from (grace and truth books) is a fabulous resource.
Besides being pink and hardcover and looking so cute on the shelf :)….this series continues to be a favorite. These stories are set in the 1840’s and as you follow 8 year old Elsie through her life, lessons that run true are taught. *another side note: I also love Vision Forum as a resource!*
So these have all passed my Motherly “appropriateness” test and have brought much joy to my girls and will forever be a part of our family library!!
Do you have any of these? Or other books that you love for young readers? Do share!! 🙂
