I really do love classic children's literature. What I love even more is FREE classic children's literature! I decided to invest in a $99 Kindle to save time and money (on late fees at the Library!). So, I thought I'd post some of my favorite Authors for you to consider reading with your kids this summer...
I love all the Arthur Scott Bailey books (some are written with Harry L Smith). They are free for your Kindle from www.amazon.com use this link to get to them here. Stories like The Tale of Solomon Owl, The Tale of Master Meadow Mouse and The Tale of Henrietta Hen and so many more! These are imaginative fun stories of various animal characters told with skillful creativity. I think I have all his books downloaded onto my Kindle at this point!
I also love all the Thornton W. Burgess books! They too are mostly free for your Kindle from www.amazon.com and you can use this link to get to them here. Also in the spirit of animal tales spun fancily and fun with title such as The Adventure of Johnny Chuck, The Adventures of Old Mr. Toad and The Adventures of Prickly Porky and so many more! These too I have all downloaded onto my Kindle.
The last nugget I'll leave you with is the free books by Clara Dillingham Pierson and F.C. Gordon. They can also be had for free on www.amazon.com and you can use this link to get to them here. They are in keeping with animal stories for kids that capture their imagination as well. Four favorite titles are Among the Forest People, Among the Meadow People, Among the Night People and Among the Pond People.
