8. My 10th grade daughter (2nd year Spanish)
is taking on "The Hunger Games" in Spanish (Los juegos del hambre). The recommendation was to start with something like Clfford, but she wanted to go whole hog. If she can read it by 4th year, then I will be impressed. I told her this is how we learned Latin (translating Julius Caesar which is probably at a comparable level). It is probably a little easier translating something that originally started in English?? She will have the English version to compare to.
