Arthur for the Very First Time by Patricia MacLachlan
Patricia MacLachlan is one of my favorite authors of kids’ books. In this book, 10-year-old Arthur spends a summer with his eccentric aunt and uncle on their farm. His aunt and uncle do things very differently from what Arthur is used to at home. Over the course of the summer, he makes a new friend and learns how to look at life with a new attitude. This is a fun book filled with unforgettable characters.
