Please select just one or two books. If in 2011 you decided to read one of your favorite books as a child (7 to 11 years old), what book would you read? Perhaps it would be a Dr. Seuss book, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Treasure Island, A Wrinkle in Time, The Secret Garden … or perhaps something else. (Repeating a book someone else has mentioned is perfectly okay.)
October 28, 2010 Update:
The books people have suggested so far are listed below. Do you see any glaring omissions? Are there books on the list (other than the one or two you recommended) that you think should be included on the list of Top Six Reads for 2011?
