Good Books

Just a few of our family's favorites. Feel free to share your own!

  • Minnow on the Say by A. Philippa Pearce
  • Swallow ans Amazon by Arthur Ransome
  • Martin Rattler by R.M. Ballantyne (or anything else he wrote)
  • Henty books - In Freedom's Cause, Under Drake's Flag, and In the Reign on Terror are the best.
  • A Cricket in Times Square by George Seldon
  • David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
  • My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George
  • The works of Beatrix Potter
  • The Scottish Chiefs by Jane Porter
  • Most of the Holling Clancy Holling books, especially Paddle to the Sea
  • Almost all the Jane Austen books
I'm quite sure I could keep you here all day just adding onto that list. But I won't. I'll keep you here all day with a list of our favorite non-fiction books instead!

  • The Bible
  • A Praying Life by Paul Miller
  • The Valley of Vision
  • Secrets of the Woods by William J. Long
  • Little Brother to the Bear by William J. Long
  • Stonewall Jackson's Book of Maxims by James Robertson Jr.
  • All the World books by Genevieve Foster
  • All the d'Aulaire books
  • A Patriot's History of the United States by Schweikart and Allen - wonderful!!!!
  • Golden Press Field Guides, Peterson Bird Guide, and the Birds of (state name) Field Guides by Stan Tekiela
  • Sibley Guide to Bird Life and Behavior by David Allen Sibley
  • 1776 by David McCullough
As with the first list, this could be expanded quite a bit. I guess we love books. I like it this way. :)
