8 Books Worth Building Your Own Flashlight For

A word from Liam's Mom:
This list was compiled by my 11-year-old son Liam, who enjoys reading in bed after heís supposed to be asleep.† Heíll sneak a flashlight under the covers, and if we confiscate that? Heíll construct one from his Snap Circuits Electronics Kit. Really.

Below are his recommendations, along with a quote from him about each book. I hope you enjoy them.
