This post features my all time favorite juvenile, fun reads which for sure will get you out of a reading slump.
- Black Beauty, Anna Sewell: I remember reading it when I was about 8 and loving it to pieces.It is an autobiographical memoir told by a horse. It speaks of issues like mistreatment of horses by mismanaging owners and their eventual fate. Anna Sewell herself was extremely concerned with the treatment of horses and wrote this book from the point of view of the horse to arouse in her readers compassion for animals. This is a must read for animal lovers, children and vegans alike. Get it for less at Amazon https://amzn.to/2XtaQ3H
2. Emil and the Detectives, Erich Kastner: My brother actually won this book in a book festival. It is set in Berlin and follows Emil, an enterprising young boy who , instead of giving up on his task due to being stolen from, joins a gang of young boys and tracks the thief down. I loved the way it portrayed child-power and how it showcased their problem solving ability.
