Books on the natural world enthrall my kids, and I'll happily read them a beautifully illustrated story full of interesting facts. Especially forty-year-old books with worn pages, curled edges, and softened covers. For pennies apiece.
Who doesn't want to know what birds do at night?

I loved Misty of Chincoteague as a kid! We actually went on a vacation a long time ago to the Misty Museum. Misty was stuffed there (kinda creepy) and we met her nasty grandson. But the best part was going to the beach were the wild horses were. one was actually munching on weeds growing up between the parking lot cracks, didn't seem very wild to me.
Her other books are great too! I liked Justin Morgan and King of the Wind. When Saskia goes through the horse stage that I believe every little girl goes through, she might enjoy those.

I was unaware of the Misty Museum. I think we've found our next holiday destination.
That book is from 1947! I had assumed it was from the eighties, since that's when I read it.
