Enid Blyton's Adventure Series
I've read two of this series to my boys now, as our 'read aloud' for Homeschooling. The boys are 7yrs and 12.5yrs, We've all loved them, me included. We love vintage literature like this that harks back to simpler times. The vocabulary is more extensive than modern works for children, and the adventures the kids have hold my boys interest from start to finish. Kiki, the Cockatoo, adds a comical flair that has the boys laughing. There are some social elements in some of the books which were indicative of the times they were written in, but would not be PC now. The odd race issue here and there. I simply read the sentence in a way that removes those issues and eliminates prejudice. I certainly wouldn't dismiss the books because of it. They are great reads.
