Finding Good Books For Kids Age 7 – 12
Sometimes it can be a real challenge getting older kids to take an interest in reading. I don’t know if it is because they get assigned reading in school that they do not like or if it is because reading can be a bit of a struggle for some children. I have a nephew who insisted that he hated reading and refused to pick up a book….until he heard me reading aloud one of the books listed below. Ever since that day, he has been devouring books as fast as I can send them to him. The books listed below were some of my favorites as a kid, as well as his. Any of these books will make a great gift for the kids on your shopping list.
The Phantom Tollbooth
Oh, the Places You’ll Go!
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series
