For the boy, its Holes. a book about a young boy named Stanley who has been cursed with bad luck and sent to a boys detention camp when he was wrongly accused of stealing some shoes. Its a little more difficult reading for him, which is good and presents a challenge for him. I can't tell you how many books I have read and reread at different ages. Each time I found a new understanding while reading.
Lastly, for the little lady. We grabbed this book from the library and she absolutely loves it. I will be adding it to the collection we have at home. Its called Don't Wake Up the Bear. Your little one will love it if you become animated while reading it.
