I've been an avid reader all my life. I have an 8 year old grandson that lives 3 hours away. He has become a pretty good reader but lives the life of a gamer/computer fanatic. Dad is a computer geek who likes to fish, went duckhunting with me once just as an observer, is not opposed to outdoor pursuits but passes none on to the boy. He fishes with me when he is at my house and has read what books his school library has about game animals and hunting. I'm looking for some book suggestions for Christmas to whet his appetite. It's been a long time since I was 8 so the only book that sticks in my memory from that time frame that would be at about the right reading level is "Where the Red Fern Grows." Any suggestions would be appreciated.
