A family that reads together…

by Anna Blanch on November 14, 2011

I’m quite happy to receive requests for reading suggestions.  I thought i’d share a recent request and my answer here too:

Hi Anna,

I wanted to ask if you could suggest some classic must reads for younger readers like M…. (grade 6).  I am looking for books to read with her.
