My absolute favorite book. I've read it over and over. Where the Red Fern Grows is a novel written by Wilson Rawls in 1961 about a boy who buys and trains two Redbone Coonhound hunting dogs <3 Love this book!

Where the Red Fern Grows ~ my all-time favorite book as a youth. Still love it - many, many years later.
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls. My book. My all time favorite book as a kid.
THE BOOK that EVERY child should have read to them!! I read this to my children when they were small (4 kids ages 2-7). We read two chapters a night (even though they would BEG me to read "just one more chapter"). I laughed out loud while reading this....and found myself trying to read through a haze of tears. It is just a beautiful story about a boy and his dogs. Very touching...and so worth reading over and over again. (All of my children have re-read this story on their own...several times).
Top 10 Favorite Books #book #novel
To Kill a Mockingbird Book | Harper Lee- honestly one of the best books I've ever read. Really gives insight to life at the times. I recommend the book for summer reading, grades 7 and up, but anyone younger should ask a parent first, because of some language and other things.

To Kill a Mockingbird: Harper Lee - One of my all time favorite books of al time. A BEAUTIFUL piece of literature, with a serious life lessons I still carry around.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - still my all time favorite book. I read this for the first time in 6 grade. I fell in love with it and credit it for my passion for books. #ThriftBooksSchoolClassics
To Kill a Mockingbird: Harper Lee - One of my all time favorite books and movie adaptations, and I get something out of it with each reading. This is storytelling in rare form; Lessons are scarce in today's reality TV atmosphere. This is a book that will help you escape.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee ~ one of my favourite books in high school. I love this cover!

Neighbors bring food with death and flowers with sickness and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good-luck pennies, and our lives. But neighbors give in return. We never put back into the tree what we took out of it: we had given him nothing, and it made me sad. (harper lee, to kill a mockingbird)- This is one of my favorite books I read in high school. :)

The ALA just released the most challenged books of 2011 (which they take from reports from schools and libraries all over the country). Reminds me of when I was in High School and I attempted to read the 100 most challenged books in history ... however I got a little bored with all the historical novels :) These, on the other hand, seem much more exciting. Check out the whole article here and compare your "read list" to the following:: ttyl; ttfn; l8r, g8r - by Lauren Myracle The Color of Earth - Kim Dong Hwa The Hunger Games Series - Suzanne Collins (seriously! I understand but I love these books) (Read It!) My Mom's Having a Baby - Dori Hillestad Butler (do people really expect this book to not be graphic?) The Absolutely True Story of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie (really interesting article by Sherman Alexie here) The Alice Series by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor Brave New World by Aldous Huxley (Read It!) To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (Read It!) Gossip Girl Series by Cecily Von Ziegesar (Read It - no "!", they weren't that fantastic) What My Mother Doesn't Know by Sonya Sones I'm embarrassed that I've only read four out of the ten books here (12 if you include the series, but I don't think they do). Looks like I have more to add to my reading list!
The Pillars of the Earth
This book is constantly on my "Books to Read" list. I pinned this from my dear friend, Kat's board, who has it posted as one of her all time favorites... Now, I've definitely got to read it!
Ken Follett, Books I Ve, Amazing Book, Reading List, Books Books, Favorite Books, Historical Fiction, Good Books, Time Favorite
This is one of my all time favorite books. It's about the building of a cathedral in 12th century England and the people that are involved in the process. Really great historical fiction!
This is one of my all-time favorite books! An amazing journey that takes you through the building and designing of fictitious cathedral in England during the 12th century. The tv mini series does not do this book justice... it must be read to appreciate Folletts amazing ability to re-create the events of the time.
The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. Historical fiction that is also a murder mystery, architectural education on building cathedrals, love story...everything. Thank you Ken Follett for the gift of many pleasant hours spent reading your book.
This is one of my all-time favorite books. I have not read/seen many novels that use the Middle Ages as a simple and straightforward backdrop to a beautiful story. The history of the time is painted expertly around the characters and emphasizes them without producing the stereotypical images of the time. Love it.
The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett Historical fiction... no no! don't yawn. one of my very favorite books :)
One of my all time favorite books. Love all of Ken Follett's books
The Pillars of the Earth, by Ken Follett- AMAZING book.
Of Mice and Men: (Centennial Edition)
Entering Seventh Grade, Book of Choice Option: Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. Williston Northampton, Middle School English Department
Of Mice And Men, Banned Book, John Steinbeck, Books I Ve, Reading List, Books Books, Favorite Books, High Schools
Of Mice and Men is a book by John Steinbeck which is challenged because of "racial slurs, profanity, and violence". I am interested in banned books, so I plan to read this one soon. It could be read in class in celebration of banned books week.

Of Mice And Men Book | Book: Of Mice and Men (1937)
Of Mice and Men : John Steinbeck : 9780881030372
Oh to list the many places this book has been banned would fill this page with pointless dribble of unworthy names. Of Mice and Men, a classic and staple in many summer reading lists or classroom assignments, has been challenged or banned in numerous places in the United States and Ireland. It is actually number 12 on ALA's Most Challenged Classics book list. The one challenge I read which made me laugh the loudest is that the KKK apparently challenged the book! The main reason the book has been challenged or banned from schools are for the following reasons: profanity and using God's name in vain it was 'filthy' anti-business attitude authors questionable patriotism racial slurs it's violent ending morbid and depressing themes derogatory towards African Americans, women, and developmentally disabled Apparently we're only supposed to read fluffy happy books in this world. Apparently, nothing bad happens and if it does, we should shun it. This is literature, this is fiction, this is the freedom of speech and freedom of the press. If you have a dislike for anything in that list, that is your choice and your right. But to try and take away an authors right because it does not agree with your own? That's ludicrous. I do not believe in using racial slurs, I feel it is wrong, so you won't see me running around chanting those words. Do I think they should be removed from the book though? No. The setting of this book takes place years ago when racial slurs were part of everyones vocabulary. There was a clear line separating whites from African Americans. It's a sad fact, but it's the truth, it is America's past. With the story line, location, and events that play out it would take away from it's sense of reality if it were not to include these skewed perspective of people. I think this book tells more of the relationship between a small, quick, and tough man and the love he had for this lumbering giant who had some form of a mental disability. Proof that people who have mental disabilities are human and can be loved to, proof that they can be misunderstood. Maybe it wasn't such a good example due to what the character accidentally does in the end of the book. Maybe. But it's near impossible not to fall in love with the relationship these two have. And let's look at it this way: Here are two characters who are at completely different mental and physical ends from each other. They go from place to place, coming across racism, adversity, and problems along the way. Their lives are not exactly perfect but they work hard, all for their dream: to own their own piece of land that they can run themselves and they'd never have to work for someone again. These men might be completely different from one another, but they still have an American dream.
The Catcher in the Rye - Salinger

catcher in the #cover book #book cover #book covering #3d book cover| http://coverbookrachelle.blogspot.com
Since his debut in 1951 as The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield has been synonymous with "cynical adolescent." Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he's been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on banned book lists.
Lol, Holden Caulfield. :D The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger | 13 Of Your Favorite Books If Their Titles Were Honest
J.D. Salinger: The Catcher in the Rye book cover THE CATCHER IN THE RYE is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caulfield. Through circumstances that tend to preclude adult, secondhand description, he leaves his prep school in Pennsylvania and goes underground in New York City for three days.
I've never understood parents wanting to ban this book from high school libraries and literature reading lists. Whenever I've asked many of them if they're read it, they say no, "but I've heard a lot of negative things." The story of a troubled teenager, Holden Caulfield, "The Catcher in the Rye" is on my list of books I read every few years. Like many fans of Salinger, I try and keep the popularity fires burning!
For more than fifty years, Catcher, easily the most banned book of the twentieth century American canon, the favorite target of conservative school systems, earnest parents groups, and strident church organizations, has thrived on its reputation as an underground text, passed among ardent readers with cult-like fanaticism, hard core fans who have found in the lonely misfit Holden Caulfield a companion, a friend for life.

Life of Pi
Sixteen year old Pi is left on a lifeboat with animal companions, including a 450 lb. Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.
Book Club, Books Worth Reading, Books I Ve, Reading List, Book Review, Books Books, Zoo Animals, Favorite Books
Life of Pi is one of my all-time favorite books. Drawing from religious philosophy, survival narratives such as Adrift by Steven Callahan, and (famously) Max and the Cats by Moacyr Scliar, it is an amazingly creative and complete work of its own. It’s an adventure novel, an allegory, an existential quest. Surreal, haunting, wrenching. Magical.
Life of Pi by Yann Martel. Pi Patel, a sixteen-year-old emigrant from India, finds himself aboard a lifeboat with a small menagerie of zoo animals, including a 450 pound hungry tiger named Richard Parker. This is a strange and beautiful story that defies conventional explanation - a story, as one character says - to make you believe in God.
Elaine Holliday AND Emily Smith - Life of Pi by Yann Martel. The son of a zookeeper, Pi Patel has an encyclopedic knowledge of animal behavior and a fervent love of stories. When Pi is sixteen, his family emigrates from India to North America aboard a Japanese cargo ship, along with their zoo animals bound for new homes.

The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank- I hope I don’t need to explain why this book is so important. You probably read this as a student, but read it again. It may be the ultimate book about the power of hope and strength in the midst of unspeakable atrocities, and it serves to remind us that there will always be evil in the world, but that we must not let it win.
Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank. Recommended by SP student Sameen - "I love this book because Anne's resilient spirit never fails to inspire me. Despite going through a war and facing numerous challenges whilst in hiding, she is still able to remain optimistic.This book has taught me that we should never lose hope in times of adversity, as sometimes, adversity is what we need to face in order to become more resilient."
