What About the Classics?
This is a question of considerable debate depending who attempts to answer it. It seems that there is no definitive answer but there does appear to be some agreement that the term refers to quality books.
The consensus is that the classics are the books that were written a long time ago and do not include the recent titles that may be more familiar to your child, such as Harry Potter or the latest vampire series. (Sorry, but, that's what my research turned up.)
Do a quick Google search for a list of classics and expect such titles as 1984, Animal Farm, The Grapes of Wrath, and The Catcher in the Rye, just to name a few.
You know, the books you were required to read in school long before there was even a thought of an electronic device like a Kindle!
So, whether you choose to homeschool during the summer or sign up for a reading program, select a high school summer reading list and open up a wonderful new world for your son or daughter with exciting stories and imaginative characters.
