Interesting list. What makes a main character "strong" I wonder. I mean, I wouldn't have picked the Moomins for a list like that, as much as I adore the Moomins.

I love book lists! I enjoyed reading your dd's blog. What a thoughtful list of Earth Day activities. :)

Memorable characters, perhaps. Strongly written.

Not my list :) But I thought it was a nice selection of books.

Vivid and memorable characters, definitely!

(I wasn't being snarky, I promise!)

Stella, thank your daughter for me for adding Ramona Quimby. Those books were my all-time fave as a kid, I don't think they get enough credit.:) And I love that she had Winnie the Pooh on there! There is a lot of wisdom in that little old bear.

Good Night Mr. Tom and Back Home were two of my favorite books growing up--I think I read them a dozen times each year in middle school.
