Oldies But Goodies

Youth Services Librarian Lauren shares some picks

There is so much new children's literature out there, and a lot of it is great. But somehow, if you're a voracious reader, it can still be difficult to find that one book in the sea of many that both a) sounds appealing, and b) you haven't already gobbled up.So instead of waiting around for the next book that calls your name to be published, why not try something older? After all, everything old is new again. Here are five of my favorites from 18, 20, 35 years ago -- books that I truly believe still hold up today. Most of them will be of interest to the 8- to 13-year-old set.
