shadow in the woods, dominos, rory’s story cubes.
reading wise its so hard to say! a big hit with mine at that age was anything by dorothy edwards (check out her books about boys, joe & timothy), the dorrie books (out of print, but wonderful), the findus books, milly molly mandy, the aurora books (anna cath vesty, again, out of print but wonderful), of course astrid lingren but especially the bullerby children/noisy village, and little house in the big woods and farmer boy (laura Ingalls Wilder).
Just to say re the Laura Ingalls Wilder books: the first two books, Little House in the Big Woods and Farmer Boy, are both wonderful, a year in the life of a young pioneer child. However I’d avoid the later books in this series with young kids as I’m really not comfortable with their portrayal of native americans. I think I’d leave them til you can have a bit more of a conversation about them and for me that means reading up around the subject so I was confident to deal with it. The main book at issue is “little house on the prairie” itself which I seem to remember we skipped over and came back to. The gist of it is that the ingalls family, along with a lot of other white settlers, colonise native american land and then act the defenceless victims when the native americans are rather unhappy about it. Emotionally tricky stuff. It starts something like “there were no people in the land at all, only animals and indians”, and goes downhill from there.
