Hi all! Happy Monday!
I have a book recommendation request(s) for you!
I have a friend who loves to read and loved to read as a kid, but finds it difficult to get his two daughters interested in books. He's asked me for advice, and I think asking all of you is the best way to go about this. It takes a village, right? ;-)
So . . .
Kiddo #1: 15yo girl
Loves watching TV, and she's usually found watching cooking or travel shows, and also loves History. I know she's into boys (but Dad probably doesn't want anything TOO heavy on the romance), and she loved Twilight (but not sure if paranormal needs to be the focus). I think something historical with adventure and a bit of romance would be awesome. Or a Julia Child meets Joan of Arc thing. lol
Kiddo #2: 10yo girl
*Totally stealing some of these recs for my own 10yo!
Loves the Disney teeny-bopper movies like High School Musical, and is very into skateboarding and surfing. (I think some of the more sports-oriented MG/lower young adult books would be great for her, as well as my own kiddo.)
So, what do you think I should recommend?
Please leave your suggestions in the comments!
