    Here are some books my 11 year old son either loves or are on my list for him to read:

    Malcolm at Midnight (and sequel), Henry Huggins (series), Rabbit Hill (and sequel), The Door in the Wall, The Green Ember, The Blackstar of Kingston, Henry Reed (series), Bambi a Life in the Woods, Kensuke’s Kingdom, Lassie Come Home, My Side of the Mountain (series).

    He also loved the Caddie Woodlawn and Nim’s Island books, even though they are mostly about girls.
