Good Childrens Book Recommendation
One of my top recommendations for little boys ages 6 to 13 years is the Horatio Hornblower books by C.S. Forester. This has everything a budding man needs. Excitement, danger, acts of courage, the meaning of honor, history, and good Christian morals. This is something you will have to read to your child until they reach the pre-teen or teen years because it is fairly challenging by our standards, but I found it fascinating and fun for me as well. My eldest daughter read the entire series of books when she was about 12 and gives them two big thumbs up. Hornblower is a great role model for young men. This deserves a place in your home library.
