Tigerle, you're awesome!
She's happy with the SAT words, for now. Thank you! I'm so glad she can pick her own. They aren't super challenging for her, but she's excited about the choices. I love the feel of her first SAT-inspired list, so I thought I'd share. •Elucidate make clear •Connoisseur person with refined taste and good judgment •Nefarious wicked; immoral; disreputable •Egregious outstandingly, obviously bad •Nebulous vague •Subpoena summons to court •Eclectic taking things from different...

I just wanted to come back after all this time and tell you all that your recommendations were super helpful. Dd1 read all the Trixie Belden books and adored them! She also absolutely loved the Anne of Green Gables books! Die Wilden Hühner was also a hit! She also really took took to Die ??? - ironically she didn't like the girl series.
