I would have loved being part of this program when I was a kid. Every time I see one of these in a thrift shop or wherever, I grab it. So far, this is the best. Seriously, these stories are aimed at motivated children (ages 11-12?) but they have a beauty and power that makes me, four decades older and thousands of books more experienced, want to read more by every author in here.
So far - I am REALLY enjoying all the stories in the in book. I am kinda sick of being in the one who is always reading to the kids, so if you want to record a story I would love you forever!
I only remember two of the stories, but I'm sure that I must have read more of them.

Through the Tunnel Doris Lessing - read
Raymond's Run Toni Cade Bambara - read
