Book List: 9 Books for Girls Who Love Adventure
This is probably not your typical reading list for a preteen girl but it's a list written by my daughter when she was 13. She loved reading adventure stories or stories about Indians or pioneers and then acting them out. I know there are a lot of girls out there like her so I thought I'd share her list with you. Please feel free to pass it on to others! (The words are her own and I didn't change any of the grammar or spelling.)
1. The Lord of the Rings - This is my favorite book of all times. I think it's the best book ever written
2. Beauty - This book is based on the Beauty and the Beast story. And is really really good.
3. The Swiss Family Robinson - I love books were people are shipwrecked and have figure out how to survive with what they have.
4. The Princess and the Goblin - Is a great fantasy book and lots of great morals in it, by the famous author George MacDonald.
5. The Redwall Abbey Series - Is another great story of mice and other small animals.
6. Mara, Daughter of the Nile - Is a action, love story set in Ancient Egypt.
7. Little Woman - My mom loves this story about the life of four sisters
8. King Solomon's Mines - Is a action book about Allen Quatermain and others trying to find treasure.
