Do you have any children’s book recommendations.
I’m going to the library sometime this week, and I want to check out some books for my younger brother and sister. My brother is seven years old and a beginning reader. I don’t want one that is too long he’d get frustrated trying to read, or one with all pictures either. He’s in the first grade. My sister is nine…
When I was a child, I loved A Child’s Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson. It has poems which are easy to understand as well as lovely illustrations. I remember never growing tired of it. In fact, I still have my old copy.
