There are other posts on this topic. Anyway here goes - depending on how well the kid is reading, children of this age enjoy comics - tinkle, amar chitra katha, tintin, asterix. My son loves the pre-teens set from TimeLife (yesteday we read about the immune system), but you will have to sit with them and explain patiently.

Roald Dahl, Enid Blyton are fiction authors that come ot my mind. These days kids get hooked to a differnet set of authors - series like Princess, Goosebumps etc.

You get abridged versions of many classics and you are lucky if the kid enjoys them :).

The best bet would be to take them to a library and let them loose. There are many kids libraries sprouting in Blore these days. Do you stay in the South?

Thanks Coordinator..I was wondering where the replies disappeared.

apar_sai ,How is tintin and asterix? Is it worth investing in those comics?How much is the cost of timelife series?

The series are expensive. You'll find Asterix/Tintin in libraries near you. Try, they door deliver books. Which area do u live in?

Where is laxmi road?

I agree with apar_sai series like Asterix, Tintin, Spirou, etc are very expensive. Library is the way to go. When I was browsing in another group of parentree regarding weekend math activity, I happened to check website of library by name Books N Toys.

On that website I saw good collection of books. They also seem to have door delivery. Check it out.
