Old books for new readers
There are so many fabulous children's books around us here, and it's always exciting to introduce a new reader to old favorites. I'm a sci-fi/fantasy type of girl, and I've got books for any age percolating in my mind from years of reading. Just today, I introduced two budding readers to two of my favorite series: The Protector of the Small by Tamora Pierce for a 12 year old girl, and The White Mountains by John Christopher for a 10 year old boy. Both are old favorites in my family, and my parents always love hearing me talk about introducing our favorite books to new readers. They'll be happy when I tell them about today!
