And what kinds of books she likes, but here are some I enjoyed at or near that age:
The Phantom Tollbooth (everyone, kid or grownup, should own a copy!)
The Little House on the Prarie books (my mom had read most of them to us when we were younger than 12, but now would be a good time for her to read them on her own.)
Anne of Green Gables
The BFG by Roald Dahl
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
The Secret Garden (she might be a little old for this--depends on her reading habits)
Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh
Jacob Have I Loved by Katherine Paterson
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (she might be just a bit young for this one)
The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle
A Gathering of Days by Joan Blos
Child of the Mist (These Highland Hills, Book 1)
