DD9 read Little Women last year and loved it. She enjoys historical novels better than any others. What a great book, I remember reading it three or four times when I was younger!

The Little House on the Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder are good. I loved mine so much, I've kept them and hope my son will enjoy reading them like I did. There's a lot of fascinating lessons to be learned from them.
