Manolo says, there are two very nice discussions underway at the Teeny Manolo regarding books for childrens, the topic which has elicted very strong, but politely stated opinions from our internet friends. Last week, it was Glinda’s list of books for the younger childrens, this week, it is her list of books for the older childrens.
As with the list of the best children’s movies, the Manolo thinks that Glinda has done the admirable job, but that there are omissions here in need of mention. For the example, the Manolo loved From The Mixed-up Files Of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler and Treasure Island, and anything by S.E. Hinton, especially The Outsiders. (Oh, how the young Manolo identified with Ponyboy!)
Go now, and add your voice to this important discussion.
