NPR just posted a list of 100 books that are perfect for kids aged 9 to 14. While I no longer qualify to be in that group, I do love the books that are aimed there. And so I was a bit disappointed by the number of books on this list that I have not read.
The books are I have read on the list are:
- To Kill a Mockingbird
- The Redwall series
- The Complete Tales of Winnie-The-Pooh
- Charlotte’s Web
- The Graveyard Book
- Harry Potter: The Complete Series
- Sarah, Plain and Tall
- Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
- The Wee Free Men
- The Hobbit
- Diary of a Wimpy Kid series
- The Invention of Hugo Cabret
- A Wrinkle in Time series
But that is only 13 out of the 100 that they listed. And these books are ones that I remember really enjoying.
So I think I’m missing out on the rest. There needs to be more time in the day for just reading. Less work, more reading.
Anyway, that’s what I think.
How many books on the list have you read? What books do you think are missing from the list?
