A family who is good friends of ours has a nine-year-old boy who just loves to read.
His parents, however, aren't really book people, and so I've been trying to think of some good books to keep him supplied with (trying to stick to the classics).
I gave him a copy of Robinson Crusoe for his birthday, and he loved it. I was thinking of giving him The Call of the Wild, or The Last of the Mohicans next, but am not sure.
Does anyone else have some good, old-time classic books they'd like to recommend for that age group?
