They are good books for independent reader above the age of 6 or seven, won’t be too hard on them.

This is a great set of the classic tales, readable to several different levels.
What is classic reading?
Classical literature refers to the great masterpieces of Greek, Roman, and other ancient civilizations. The works of Homer, Ovid, and Sophocles are all examples of classical literature. The term isn’t just limited to novels. It can also include epic, lyric, tragedy, comedy, pastoral, and other forms of writing.
Why children should read classics?
Kids quickly catch on to all the differences between their own modern world and the ones they are reading about in the classic novels. This helps give them appreciation for how the world has changed and helps them see the importance of shaping a better future.
What makes a book Timeless?
To be timeless, a novel must not just contain an interesting story. It also has to be a worthy story. Consider the novels of Herman Wouk, an author whom most discerning critics dismiss as an inferior stylist, a simplistic moralizer and (worst of all) philosophically conservative.
Is it hard to write a childrens book?
Again, writing children’s books is not easy. Take your time to get it right. Despite being short, children’s books require the same type of effort that 300-page novels do. Review the story, diction, syntax, word choice, and other aspects that could affect how a child experiences the story.
