I have always been a bit bookish. While most kids would rather do *other* things, I just wanted to read. Don't misunderstand, I listened to music, played on my Nintendo, hung out with friends and participated in school activities but at night, before bed and sometimes skipping dinner--I was reading.
So, I already have the whole Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" series. In PAPERBACK. Big difference. So I'm trading up. I found this set for $3.00 a book at the Goodwill today. Each one retails for $16.95!
I'm so pleased. If you have a young reader, say 10-13 years of age and she has not read these books...I HIGHLY recommend them.
