I am not the wise old fish

This morning I read, 9 Books to Get Kids Hooked on Reading for Life.

To say I was throughly unimpressed is a vast understatement.  I found the list uninspired, bland, and ... well, just wrong.

What are these 9 books?

  1. Goodnight Moon
  2. Stewart Little
  3. Ivy and Bean
  4. Pippi Longstocking
  5. The Borrowers
  6. To Kill A Mockingbird (recommended for kids who are 7 to 12 [... what?])
  7. The Mysterious Benedict Society
  8. The Fault In Our Stars
  9. Native Son
Ugh.

You want 9 books to ignite a love for reading? I've got them right here:





  1. Where the Wild Things Are
  2. Good Night, Gorilla
  3. Have You Seen My Duckling?
  4. The Pain and the Great One
  5. Superfudge
  6. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
  7. The Phantom Tollbooth
  8. Jonathan Livingston Seagull
  9. This Is Water



Enjoy.

... and you're welcome.
