Most Fridays, we like to present our favorites. So today, you get input from the 9th grader.
We were reading British authors this fall, so I wondered what his favorite books were:
1) NOT Ivanhoe (sorry, Sir Walter Scott)
2) Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis (you never outgrow them)
3) The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
4) Winston Churchill’s speeches
5) Some of the British poets- Kipling, Christina Rosetti, William Cowper
6) The Epistles in English Standard Version (I know, the Brits didn’t write it, but it is a lovely British translation.)
7) Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Elliot
8) A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
What were the favorite reads for your children this fall?
