Enid Blyton for 9-10 year olds?
Posted 30 July 2004 - 12:09 PM
Maybe this topic in not appropiate for BalletTalk at all!!
My 9 year old nephew does not like reading at all - and this shows in his school work, and his teacher caller his parents's attention on this.
I thought of lending him some Enid Blyton stories (which I used to devour as a child his age - of course in their translation into Spanish),but I have read somewhere that this author has been criticized.
As I am not totally sure why this is so, I would welcome some light on this. Also I would welcome any other recommendation you may have (it will be my task to find out if there is a Spanish translation for your recommendations, then!!! :rolleyes: )
Thanks so much

Thanks for reviving the thread, cubanmiamiboy. I had actually not heard of Enid Blyton before this thread was begun. Just another example of BTers broadening my horizons.

Speaking of from my own Enid Blyton reading craze, I remember the wonderful feeling of superiority you got - but it was superiority to the adults in the book. "Generationist", you might call it. How great to enter a world in which the kids could outsmart all the adults around them! This, I think, is one of the main attractions Enid Blyton has for children. Her books make you feel so capable, so clever, so able-to-handle-life. And that's a good thing for kids, isn't it?
