Might I distract you another day from the FO report I owe you – but lack photos – or the Christmas report … more lack of photos… ??
Way back at Mistletoe Market, I discovered Usborne’s Jack Russell Dog Detective Series. I ordered the first four, and devoured them while we were at the beach. That Jack Russell (first and last name of the dog detective) is a fun pup!
Why yes, they ARE children’s books. Usborne ranks them as 9+. However, I’m pretty sure that almost any child capable of sitting through a very short chapter here and there would enjoy them, even if an adult or older child had to read aloud to them.
There are many other dog characters, doggie vocabulary at the end of every chapter, and a few humans and maybe a cat or two thrown in here and there. While these books are EXCEPTIONALLY light reading, I adored them and have ordered the rest of the series, just because a good, happy read is still a good, happy read, regardless of what the intended audience’s age might have been.
So tell me the truth… what children’s books do you still enjoy?
