I of course made her read them...and she loved them...of course ;-)
Here are a few of my favs. I read them until their covers fell off growing up and I still read them once a year or so...just because they are wonderful.
Jacob Have I Loved by Katherine Paterson
I didn't have a sister but still somehow related to this book. Just love it.
Of course Anne of Green Gables!
Julie of the Wolves by Jean Craighead George
My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George
I really wanted to give this a shot...
Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell
The Fledgling by Jane Langton
I dreamed of flight.
The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare
There a lot more...but this will do for now.
What were/are your staples? It's sharing time class ;-)
