    While the story of Hellen Keller may be familiar to you, it is something else entirely to hear her life described in her own words. Written in surprisingly simple text for a memoir of the early 1900s, Keller describes her struggles and growth in vivid detail that makes for a highly engaging read. Whether for casual reading or for scholastic value, this is sure to be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys stories of triumph in the face of adversity. 232 softcover pages. – Laura

    Harold Bloom (originator of Bloom's Taxonomy, a hierarchy of learning) has selected the stories and poems in this anthology. Bloom does not accept the category of "Children's Literature" as he feels it implies stories have been dumbed down. He blends Kipling, Carroll, and Lear with Hawthorne, Gogol and Turgenev, all chosen to illuminate and entertain. He feels children often stop reading because they are not challenged by what they read. This anthology includes 41 stories (many quite short) and 83 poems, including 8 selections by Lewis Carroll. The writings are organized into four themed sections, one for each season. Most works are from the 19th century or earlier. Fantasy is represented in animal fables and fairy tales. Comedy is throughout. I loved reading Bloom's intro to the book. He is truly in love with the writing he has chosen for this collection. Some titles includes: the Wind and the Rain (Shakespeare,) A Crazy Tale (Chesterton,) the Remarkable Rocket (Wilde,) the Goose Girl (Bros Grimm,) the Stag Looking Into the Water (Aesop,) the Recessional (Saki,) the Red Shoes (Anderson,) the Eagle (Tennyson.) pb, 572pp. ~Sara

    From Nobel Prize-winning author Isaac Bashevis Singer comes a collection of autobiographical stories about growing up in a ghetto during WWII. Although they are written from the perspective of a child, there is a depth to the stories to keep them engaging for older readers. There are some Jewish and Polish terms used throughout the book that might make this a little trickier for younger readers and might require a little bit of research if you wish to gain a complete understanding. Very in-depth and informative, written in an engaging manner. 227 soft cover pages with occasional black and white photographs. National book award winner. – Laura

    It was this charming book that first introduced readers to Edward Bear - or, Winnie-the-Pooh as he came to be called. Written for A.A. Milne's son, Christopher, this book was the result of many bedtime stories about the bear and his friends - and even Christopher Robin himself. It is in this volume that readers will find the beloved stories in which Pooh disguises himself as a raincloud to trick some bees ("Tut, tut, it looks like rain"), Pooh becomes quite stuck in Rabbit's hole after a visit, Pooh and Piglet hunt for Woozles, Eeyore loses (and finds) his tail, Piglet meets a Heffalump, Piglet survives a flood, Christopher Robin leads an "expotition" to the North Pole, and more. Ten chapters, or stories, are included overall, accompanied by the original artwork of Pooh and his friends by Ernest H. Shepard. 161 pages, softcover.
