My oldest is a self proclaimed, "Book Worm." He is 7 and I want to add in some outdoor/adventure books, as he is pretending to be characters from his books. Anyone have some suggestions? His current reading level is Hardy Boys-ish.
There is a book called, My Side of the Mountain that I read when I was a kid. Great adventure/outdoor book for a kid. Little boy runs away from NYC and lives in the Catskill mountains. Not sure on the level but likely a little much for a 7 year old. Definitely something he should read at some point though.
Old Yeller, Where the Red Fern Grows, Call of the Wild, White Fang, Huckleberry Finn.
There is a condensed version of Moby Dick that is very good for that age. My oldest is also 7. Got it on Amazon. I don't hand it to him but sometimes I read sections out of MeatEater to him. He likes that.
A book I give out to a lot of teenagers, male or female, who enjoy the outdoors is 'Wild At Heart". It's written by a Christian author. May not be quite for younger children, but early teens +. Great book. I recommend it to everybody.
