Alethea’s Reading List – H1 2010

This is embarrassing.  It has been HALF A YEAR and I still haven’t posted my children’s booklists for the year!  *blush*

Books stacked by Nathalie.  The two Lee Kuan Yew books on the right are strategically but not deliberately placed.  😀

So here’s the next best thing.  The list of books 9 year-old Alethea (born September 2000) has read this year:

Miracles on Maple Hill by Virginia Sorensen

Sing Down the Moon by Scott O’Dell

Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter

Gentle Ben by Walt Morey

Hurry Home, Candy by Meindert DeJong

Pinky Pye by Eleanor Estes

Ginger Pye by Eleanor Estes

All-of-a-Kind Family by Sydney Taylor

The Great Turkey Walk by Kathleen Karr

The Borrowers by Mary Norton

The Incredible Journey by Sheila Burnford

Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson (we listened to this on audio book as a family)

The House of Sixty Fathers by Meindert DeJong

Archimedes and the Door of Science by Jeanne Bendick

The Peterkin Papers by Lucretia Peabody Hale

Rules of the Road by Joan Bauer

The Railway Children by E. Nesbit

Gone-Away Lake by Elizabeth Enright

Return to Gone-Away by Elizabeth Enright

Amos Fortune: Free Man by Elizabeth Yeats

Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson

Anne of Green Gables series (the first six books) by Lucy Maud Montgomery

Sorry no links to The Home Library store this time because we are STILL CLOSED!  😀  But if you are keen on getting any of these books, you can ask Carissa of for help.

Happy reading!



  1. Oh goody! I was just listing out books I could introduce the older 2 to! BTW I don’t like Anne of the Green Gables series. So it’s taking FOREVER to finish it with Sarah 😦

    • Oh man! Alethea is HOOKED on the series! If YOU don’t like it, let Sarah read it on her own lah! 🙂 I have just ordered books 7 and 8 of the series since they didn’t come in the box set I bought her.

  2. Er…I don’t like Anne’s attitude and am not keen to have Sarah or anyone of the girls learning it from her 🙂 We much prefer Pollyanna!
