So I cruised on over to Beth’s to see who’s Smart Bitchin’ it today when I came across Suisan’s entry. Suisan’s daughter is caught in sixth grade English hell where there is absolutely no latitude in the teaching style and it’s driving the poor girl crazy. Suisan’s devised an at home program using short stories that her daughter really seems to enjoy, but she could use a few more recommendations like:
The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calavaras County by Mark Twain
A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
A Modern Cinderella; Or the Little Old Shoe by Louisa May Alcott
The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde
What are you short story suggestions? As a person who adores short stories I’m interested to see what y’all come up with.
