Top Ten Tuesday: Summer Reading

Top Ten Tuesday: Summer Reading

childrensbooksI have always been a reader, but my love of reading blossomed in fourth grade when my teacher challenged each student in our class to read 100 books during the school year.  To this day, many of my favorite authors and books are from the piles I read that year.   If you have a young reader struggling to meet his or her summer reading requirements, pull a book by one of the following authors.  They are sure to fall in love!

    1. How cool, I am amazed by how much we seem to have in common. Kit and Molly were my favorite American Girls by far. What was your favorite Mandie book? Did you ever read The Dear America series?
