KidderLit's thematic entries

First lines are chosen for KidderLit because they are interesting in some way. They're gripping or well-written or funny, or they come from a surprising source. And some are selected and posted on KidderLit to celebrate special occasions--holidays, birthdays, newsworthy events (read more about this). You can browse KidderLit's thematic entries using the pulldown menu in the sidebar.

Ages: 9-12
