8. Of course! Laura Ingalls Wilder's books are classics!
You'd be surprised how much kids of today become absorbed by reading about what life was like in "olden times".

As for other kids' books, the Trixie Belden mysteries are better than Nancy Drew (Trixie is hailed as a far more down-to-earth and less-than-perfect character, more realistic than ND). They've been reprinted, and are readily available in book stores. They're fun, fast-paced, and teach the values of caring for others (raising money for charities, etc.) in a subtle way. It's something sorely needed in this "all-for-me" society.
