What do you think would be a good book for kids to read during the summer?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 22, 2008
“I was always a fan of ‘Le Petit Prince,’ by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. It’s a French children’s book, but I think they have a translated version.”
“‘Little Women,’ by Louisa May Alcott, is the one I read in middle school that sticks out for me. It’s a classic.”
“I think ‘Ishmael,’ by Daniel Quinn, or any book in that series should be required reading. It just gives a good insight into the world without reading like a textbook. It makes the reader think in a different way.”
“‘The Dragons are Singing Tonight,’ by Jack Prelutsky. It’s a fun story that I read to my boys that they really get a kick out of.”
