BOOK REVIEW RATING: 9 (Close to perfection!)
If you or your child are not familiar with these books you need be. They are a must to read and have in your collection. Any book that can survive 50 years and still keep on going is a treasure and a classic. I highly, highly recommend these books to you.
Read on and read always! Have a great day everyone.
