bookshelves: to-read, ever-young, fiction, form_complexia
Read in November, 1971 , read count: 6

Liked these growing up, eons ago - and a friend of mine back then did to (you know who you are!) so I'm pretty sure I heard of them through him.

Found them again with my daughter, and we liked them in theory, but in practice, going to sleep isn't the best time to figure things out.

And one shortcoming of the whole sleep-before-reading-always practice might be the dismissal of reading activities at any other point in the day. Or maybe other kids do still read during the day, and just mine never liked to. In any case, daytime is probably better for trying to figure things out along the way. No, they're not that hard, it's just a particular mindset you have to get in to.

Anyway, great stories! A bit time-dated of course, but still excellent.

P.S. This one stands in for the whole series, don't remember specific titles..
