Looking for science or historic book suggestions2005-12-01 14:41:03 by JACJ
My daughter is at about a 7th grade reading level and is interested in books that have science themes (we just read A Wrinkle in Time, talks about atoms and 2-dimensional worlds, etc) and books that are sort of historical fiction (she loved Ben and Me about a mouse who was friends with Ben Franklin, but hates the American Girl books, they tend to be too fluffy.)
She especially likes adventures!
Any suggestions out there?
