The story is beautiful and delicate and miraculous. This was a perfect pick for a mother-daughter read with my fifth grader this summer. PS this list is loooooooong , bookmark it so you can come back to it ;. We Are in a Book!
Things have been unstable for twelve-year-old Cal Black and his Pop after they lost their farm during the Great Depression. Still, Cal loves living on the road with his dad. But after that adventure, how scary can a stepsister be? This compelling short story moves quickly and delivers a powerful and almost mystical retelling of the Huns and the Magyars and their travels westward after the elusive white stag. My sons loved listening to the tale of two brothers and the illustrations were an added bonus.
Hear Flannery O’Connor Read “A Good Man Is Hard to Find”
Seredy wrote a number of award winning novels — The Good MasterThe Singing Tree — if this one sparks their interest. The story is beautiful and delicate and miraculous. The Magician's Elephant is another great DiCamillo pick. The animal characters are so intensely drawn and Kipling reminds us that even a book filled with two- and four-legged animals and slithering creatures can teach us a powerful tale about family. Parents will have to work on their voices, as this classic is even better if you put a little vocal fun into the retelling.
For anyone with a gods- and goddesses-obsessed child — thank you, Percy Jackson — who wants to continue to feed this interest, there are some beautiful books to take out for a parent-child spin.

The Monster at the End of This Book. I knew then that this was the end of this family and I was right because who comes to the rescue The Misfit and his crew. Then he has some mental issues because he is going thru a personal conflict like some people today.
Plus the grand mother is still trying to convince him he has good in him, but like she finds out so sadly none is left he has become what his name is a misfit. Sometimes secrets and lies can comeback to haunt you. It tells of how a family was brutally murdered on vacation while taking a detour from there intended trip to Florida. While taking there detour just off the intended path, the family encountered a murderer that the grandmother recognized. Sealing their fates to death forever.
It is my opinion that the story ended too abruptly, with no conclusion as to what happened, other than the family was killed in cold blood. The grandmother tried to convince The Misfit to turn to God for guidance and to see the error of his ways by telling him he was from good people. Meaning surely his family did not act in such a manner as he did, by killing and robbing as he was doing and had done in the past.
In the end, I believe the grandmother had almost reached the Misfit with her talk of God and how he came from good people. But in the end she scared him, she saw the look in his eyes and when she reached out and touched him. He reacted so violently a good man is hard to find read aloud shot and killed her.
