These are my favorite books which are traditionally considered books for young readers. It is my feeling that a good book is a good book. I read Dickens and Asimov as a child, and I read Madeleine L'Engle as an adult.
|A Wrinkle In Time||Madeleine L'Engle||This was a wonderful tale of discovery for young Meg Murry. What is a Tesseract? Find out that and much more.|
|A Wind In The Door||Madeleine L'Engle||The wonderful sequel to A Wrinkle in Time.|
|A Swiftly Tilting Planet||Madeleine L'Engle||The third book about the Murry family. Charles Wallace has a world to save while his now grown up and married sister waits at home.|
|Many Waters||Madeleine L'Engle||The Murry twins missed much of the excitement the first three times around. Now it's their turn for adventure.|
|Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH||Robert C. O'Brien||The adventures of these brave rodents are compelling for young and old. This is not a 'look at the cute talking animals isn't that funny' book. The plot is compelling and the characterization is excellent.|
