Required Summer Reading

Poor T. she's trying to get through her required summer reading before school starts next week. Unfortunately, she has to read "Starship Troopers" and apparently the book sucks. All the kids are complaining about it and really struggling. I think she's about ready to just rent the movie starring Denise Richards.

Why can't the kids read classics? Tom Sawyer? Little Women? To Kill a Mockingbird (a personal favorite!). Lord of the Flies? George Orwell's Animal Farm? Don Quixote? Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea? Jack London's Call of the Wild? Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne? The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Other Stories by Robert Louis Stevenson? The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper? The Time Machine by H. G. Wells, Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift. Wind in the Willows? Watership Down? Great Expectations? The Great Gatsby?
