I personally think before ten is too young for Ender's Game. At this point, it's off my syllabus entirely, but ten is too young.

Sarah | 13815 comments Oh, I hate the Giving Tree too. I like the Shel Silverstein kids' poetry, but the Giving Tree doesn't read as "a parent's love" to me. It reads as selfishness.

Susan | 6406 comments I like the Giving Tree but it is sad to me. I don't know that I love how the boy under appreciates the tree.

I am glad Wind In The Willows is on there. I would add a few more.

Sarah | 13815 comments I'd add Cat Valente's Fairyland books. I've had great success giving the first one to kids.
