To find out, read this illuminating article from today's Washington Post.
I was delighted to read that children are still reading the classics, like Green Eggs and Ham for the younger set and Charlotte's Web for those a bit older and To Kill a Mocking Bird. And my favorite, Bridge to Terabithia, was a fifth-grade favorite.
Are any of your favorite books listed in the article?
