Hi looking for some suggestions please? My dd is flying through the Dork Diaries books which is fair enough I’m glad she is reading for enjoyment however don’t particularly rate them.
We had a chat tonight about what she is going to read when she finishes them. I suggested some that her teacher had recommended but she wants to re read Heidi which she really enjoyed. Can anyone recommend any that she might like please? She absolutely LOVED Pippi Longstocking too.
