Some of you have mailed me and asked me to recommend a book for kids. Well, I had to ask my son, since he loves reading. He just finished reading, "My SIDE of the MOUNTAIN" and he loved it and he wants me to read it too, so we can talk about it (I just loved it when he asked me to read it :-) ). So if you are thinking of buying a Christmas present for a 10 year old, this will be perfect gift.
It's story about a boy and his love of nature and runs away from home to live in the mountains. There, Sam must rely on his own ingenuity and the resources of the great outdoors to survive - and he discovers a side of himself he never knew existed.
