    Books Read in June

    July 19, 2012 by Brandy Vencel

    Even though we had lots of company and helped host a conference, E-Age-Ten found time to read like a maniac, which is to say that he found time to be himself. I remember reading all the time in the summers as a child and, frankly, these lists are making me miss being a child! I am, sadly, down to one book at a time. I’ve reach a new low.

    But that’s not why we’re here. We’re here to talk about what a ten-year-old boy is reading, in case you need ideas. Obviously, lots of ten-year-old boys don’t read at this pace, but this book list might have some options  to choose from, nonetheless.

    Wow – lots of breadth here! My eleven year old daughter and I are going to be requesting Tree of Freedom by Rebecca Caudill from our library! And I’ve pegged At Agincourt: A Tale of the White Hoods of Paris for later in our World History studies! Thanks!

      Glad you found some titles you liked. 🙂

      I try not to overdo GA Henty, but his books really *are* fantastic. Tree of Freedom was a leftover free read from AO Y4 that somehow got lost in the back of my shelves. Better late than never, right? 🙂
