KidzKorner: The Sixties Pt. II


This week I am continuing my favorite books written in the sixties.  This bunch is for older kids to read or for you to read to your kids.

Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell


This is the story of the survival of a Native American girl on her very own island.

Harriet the Spy by Leslie Fitzbaugh

Harriet wants to be a spy but it turns out being one is not all it's cracked up to be.

The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary


A little boy and a mouse bond over a toy motorcycle.

From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg

A brother and sister run away from home and hold up in the Museum of Art and become embroiled in the mystery of a certain statue.

You'll find these books to be relevant today and most enjoyable so until next week, keep on reading.
