February - Children's Classics

Emily is hosting February and here are her picks!

This month I have chosen to only read two books because of the length. I want everyone to come prepared with what they think makes a classic book. There are several different opinions.

Little Women
by Louisa May Alcott: “Triumph and tragedy, romance and comedy are artfully blended in an enduring domestic drama.”

Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe: “Lone survivor of a shipwreck succeeds in creating a personal kingdom on a deserted island with help from the owner of a mysterious footprint.”

Other Classical Books to consider:

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson
Peter Pan by James M. Barrie
Twelve Tales: Hans Christian Anderson
The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
Island of the Blue Dolphins
Chronicles of Narnia
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry
The Call of the Wild
Red Badge of Courage
