The granddaughter of a coworker of mine doesn’t have a lot of folks to give her Christmas gifts. She lives with her grandparents(long story) and they are great people, so she has some gifters. I don’t have grandkids, because I didn’t have kids, but I like getting prezzies for kids.
I’m told she’s really into reading now, above her grade level even. I always thought that giving books at least a little above their age, just enough to challenge, was a way to make them want to dive into literature even deeper.
What books, either current or classice, would folks recommend for a smart kid? I’m told she has the first Laura Ingalls Wilder book, Little House in the Big Woods, what about the set?
A couple years down the road I’m looking at Narnia, or Lloyd Alexander’s The Chronicles of Prydain.
