    Johnny Tremain, Mrs Rigsby and the Rats of NIHM, The phantom tollbooth, the entire Merlin Series, Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, The list goes on and on. There really is no book that should be excluded. Every piece of literature has some lesson to be learned. The only thing I would recommend is enjoy these books with your kids, make it fun for them, and they will enjoy spending the time with you. The problem with lots of parents today is they use television as a babysitter.

      I try not to point fingers, but I know what ya mean about the lack of interaction that today's parents have with their kids. I love spending time with the children of my friends and family, and you hit the nail on the head! Good book suggestions too.

      I think it was Mrs Frisby! ;-) but yes I loved that one too and I completely agree that television and indeed all technology is used too much as a babysitter.

    'The Magic School Bus' books, and the 'Dr. Seuss' books are some of the most educational, but they teach good lessons in the form of entertainment, which the children's minds soak in like a sponge!

      Dr Seuss is amazing.  I love reading his books with my daughter - possibly more than she does!!

      I remember thinking that if the eggs were green they must have gone off and I never understood why he was trying to enforce these rancid eggs on the poor bloke!
