    "It's a classic, to be sure, and I figure just about everyone has read it at one time or another. It's still a good story, though it's been reference and re-done so many times that the original gets a little lost sometimes. But still, a strong book that everyone should read once, just to see how it originally plays out."

    "Students aren't going to learn very much by reading the Secret Garden, and to this extent I cannot recommend it as educational literature. But they will be exposed to beautiful writing and a lovely, classic story for kids and young adults. I consider that a pretty significant education in its own right. "

    "Number the Stars by Lois Lowry is a historical literature book I first read in middle school and still enjoy today. The story is told from the perspective of ten year old Annemarie Johansen whose Christian family risks their lives to hide her Jewish friend, Ellen, from the Nazis during World War II. The book is compelling, a little scary at times, and asks some difficult questions about humanity. I think it would be a good educational book to teach children about the courage the people of Denmark showed in saving Jewish people from the Nazis."

    "If you're looking for the best educational literature, there's a chance that Heidi may not be the solution for you. It's a fictional novel about a young girl who lives with her grandfather in the Swiss Alps. I wouldn't consider this book to be read for educational purposes, however, it might be a good read for entertainment purposes. "

    "Since Thomas Paine and Benjamin Franklin put type to printing press, Philadelphia has been a haven and an inspiration for writers. Local essayist Agnes Repplier once shared a glass of whiskey with Walt Whitman, who frequently strolled Market Street. Gothic writers like Edgar Allan Poe and George Lippard plumbed the city's dark streets for material. In the twentieth century, Northern Liberties native John McIntyre found a backdrop for his gritty noir in the working-class neighborhoods, while novelist Pearl S. Buck discovered a creative sanctuary in Center City. From Quaker novelist Charles Brockden Brown to 1973 U.S. poet laureate Daniel Hoffman, author Thom Nickels explores Philadelphia's literary landscape."
