Stories for 8 Year Olds
Super fun stories specially chosen for eight-year-olds! A Scottish legend, a very naughty puppy, a fortune-telling dragon, poetry and elephants, a mouse rescue mission, sheep on the soccer field, a bull ant emergency, a royal wedding for Nanny Piggins, and a cross country catastrophe . . . you'll find all these and more inside. After you've read one, you'll want to read them all!
These are interesting and enjoyable story collections. Authors and settings are modern with a hint of "down-under" influence (the publisher and some of the authors are Australian). Print and story length as well as content are geared to the age designations. Likewise, you will find more of the (nicely done) illustrations in the younger books. This series is from a secular publisher and some stories have discussions of ghosts, aliens, witches, etc. Also, the last story in the 9-year-old book has a commonly used exclamatory expression that uses the word "God." 200 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
