A list of 100 books every child should read! @Stephanie Adams
An excellent list of 10 must-read Christmas books for the kids, 5 classics and 5 new favorites, put together by an elementary school librarian - #7 was a favorite of ours last year.
"The Red Tent" - Some say the Bible was written by men, & for men. What would the story be like, from a woman's view? Narrated by Dinah, only daughter of Jacob, and sister to the twelve sons of Israel, the story explores ancient fertility rites, polygamy, and the flawed nature of Biblical characters. Gut wrenching, inspiring, & emotional.

The Chronicles of Narnia (Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classics)
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (@cmn)
The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic.

“The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd is a quiet story about a young girl who lives in the deep South during the 1960's. As she comes of age, she runs away from her unhappy home with her widowed father, in search of her mother's roots; ultimately to try to find out who she is. I have shared this book with many. It will always be one of my favorites.
