What a great list for young readers (boys) of around the 6-15 year mark. (Give or take) Trev's read quite a few of these, but there are a handful that we haven't heard of that I must soon order and add to our list of reads. Great list, also read the comments under the list because some other parents added some great ones that were not on the list of 40.

Joy of the 1st snow, 1st grade
Snow globes! I made these out of baby food jars for my family for Christmas. I used figurines and trees from my Great-Grandma's Christmas village.
