    Default Looking for a good book to read to a 9 year old girl

    I am just finishing up reading Animal Farm to my 11 year old son and now looking for a good book I can read to my daughter who is 9. She loves cats and dogs, so i am thinking of a book related along those. She loved Homeward Bound movies and stuff like that. Any good books you can recommend to me?

    I read to kids of all ages quite a lot--I'm a librarian in a Christian school. These are some that I've read to that age group (girls) or to my own 9 year old daughter that she might like:
    Kate DiCamillo The Tale of Despereaux
    The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
    Norton The Borrowers
    Anne Lindbergh The Worry Week
    Montgomery Anne of Green Gables
    Noel Streatfeild Ballet Shoes
    Giff Lily's Crossing and Willow Run

    None are necessarily about cats or dogs, though. I haven't read his books, but Bill Wallace writes dog books that are quite popular with my students--Pick of the Litter, Dog Called Kitty, etc.

    I am reading Gary Paulsen's Hatchet to two of my library classes--5-6 grade and 7-9 grade boys. His books are very popular with my students.

    Thanks for the ideas. I will be taking her to the bookstore and look at some of these books and see what she picks out.
