In this digital world we live in, people are asking the question – is the power of the printed word becoming a forgotten entity. I definitely do not want my children, to miss out on the power of reading books, first hand – this is not an easy feet with “I pads” and “Kindle’s” taking the world by storm. So in our quest to keep the printed word alive, my girls have compiled a few ideas of age appropriate, recommended reading. I am hoping that this can become a regular segment in my blog.
So if you have children or are looking for gifts here are a few ideas – “real books” read by “real girls” (boys are also most welcome to send in their contributions):
I recommend this book for a ten year old or older it is called “Starring Sally J. Freedman as Herself” written by Judy Blume.
I really enjoyed reading this book, it was almost like it was about me and I was one of the characters in the book. It was very interesting and full of amazing adventures that Sally makes up in her head – which I love doing too. So if you like fun and adventure you must read it.

I recommend this book mainly for anyone my age, 7 years or older it is called “Diary of a Wimpy Kid –THE UGLY TRUTH” written by Jeff Kinney.
I have two of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books but I liked this one the best of all. It’s all about boy called Greg and what happens to him. I loved that it is all funny, gross and weird and so many silly things happen to Greg but I still enjoyed it. It was very funny and I loved reading it – I hope you enjoy it!

I recommend this book mainly for girls who are ten years old or older it is called “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret” written by Judy Blume.
This book is great; it is about girls that start a secret club, they talk about growing up and all the stuff that you go through and about boys. It also shows you that girls from different “worlds” can be friends. It was lots of fun to read – I hope you enjoy it.
