I usually donate 7-10 books, depending on what I can afford. In the past I have donated books by Harper Lee, Anne McCaffrey, Gary Paulsen, Charlie Higson, Anthony Horwitz, Sarah Dessen, Scott Westerfeld, and Stephenie Meyer. I am not opposed to donating these authors again.
Can you recommend titles children of those ages would love to receive? What about good books to teach young people how to take care of themselves and their finances?
Thanks in advance, Renee
The Myers I'll note for next year, since none of the local bookstores stock it right now and it sounds awesome -- I love historical fiction.
_Making Cents_ I'll probably skip, though. It looks like it's grades K-2, and the request the local children's service agency had was books to help the kids aging out of the system find their feet in the adult world.
BTW, I'm also donating another Snyder book I saw at work today. The Bronze Pen is about a little girl who gets a magical pen: the stories she writes with the pen come true. I'm going to give it along with a journal and a pen, three gifts in one. The agency apparently tries to match the books with the kids to some extent, so I'm hoping there's a little girl who likes to tell stories and dreams of writing them.
Thanks much for the suggestions.
If anyone else is listening and feels inclined to join in, your recommendations would be useful for about another ten days. After that, I'll have made my purchases for the year.
Merci encore. Mange tak. Mille grazie. Muchas gracias.
