I would like to ask you for advice.
What book would you recommend to my 8-year old daughter?
I'm trying to teach her reading. We are not natives but she can speak fluently. She has read all Ladybird Tales quite easily so I bought her "The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place" - which looked like a very nice book but she doesn't like it. The flowery language and the lack of a real story (at least at the beginning) are too much for her.
She would like something more filled with a story, more straight, preferably with animals. Does anybody have any advice - a book you liked or a book your kids like?
Many thanks in advance.
