Good Recommendations for Story Books

Postby ppnqq » Mon Oct 31, 2011 11:22 am

Any interesting and enriching story books to recommend for those going on to secondary school children? It's better if the books are able to help in their Secondary English and other subjects too. :imcool: :boogie:

Thank you.

Try reading magazines like Nat. Geog. and Newsweek. It will help in English and Social Studies.

Leaving Microsoft to Change the World, by John Wood (founder of Room to Read) -- http://www.roomtoread.org/
Elly: My True Story of the Holocaust, by Elly Berkovits Gross
Beyond the Fall, by Thomas Chua (nice local book)
