Reading List for Confident Readers: Aged 7-9 ( with a girlie slant)

The Girl is an avid reader. One of the best buys for her was a Kindle- the wealth of free classic Kindle books has kept her busy for hours, and saved us a fortune! Here is a list of some of the great reads she has come across:

Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Little House in the Big Wood by Laura Ingalls Wilder
On the Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Little Lord Fauntleroy by Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Railway Children by E. Nesbit
Five Children and It by E. Nesbit
Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald
The Princess and Curdie by George MacDonald
Fifty Famous Stories Retold by James Baldwin
Fifty Famous People by James Baldwin
The Black Stallion by Walter Farley
Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfield
The Magic Ballerina Books by Darcey Bussell (very girlie, through them she teaches the stories of famous ballets, perfect for a girl who loves ballet!)
Heidi by Johanna Spyri

This is not an exhaustive list. But I hope it gives some inspiration. The Girl now says her favourite writers are E. Nesbit, Frances Hodgson Burnett, and Darcey Bussell (she likes ballet!)
