When I first started this blog, I wrote my list of favorite picture books for young children because my oldest was three. I love age nine, but it’s totally pulled the rug out from under me—I feel like out of nowhere, my girl is on that cusp heading in to a (very) young adulthood, while still keeping a toe or three into little kid-hood. But honestly, my daughter’s been a total gem in early tweendom so far, and it’s fun having a kid with whom I can now have real, solid, enjoyable conversations. Last year I gave her a list of 20 chapter books, and told her that if she read 10 of them by the end of summer, we’d do something special (we ultimately went for a pedicure and ice cream). A note: This is for my kid who reads very well, but whose pastime of choice is climbing trees and digging in the dirt.
Description: A ten-year-old blind orphan who has been schooled in a life of thievery steals a box from a mysterious traveling haberdasher—a box that contains three pairs of magical eyes.
Description: Calpurnia Virginia Tate is 11 years old in 1899 when she wonders why the yellow grasshoppers in her Texas backyard are so much bigger than the green ones. Description: 11-year-old Stella misses her (unreliable) mom, but she loves it at great-aunt Louise’s house on Cape Cod. Description: May is helping out on a neighbor’s Kansas prairie homestead—just until Christmas, says Pa. Description: Miranda and her best friend, Sal, know how to navigate their New York City neighborhood. Description: Computers have failed, electricity is extinct, and the race to discover new lands is underway.
Our full list also includes Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Hoot, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs.

This said, if anyone has any experience with these books for younger kids, please chime in!
When parents have asked me this question about younger readers, I always tell them they know their children best.
If you’re not sure, read alouds are always, always a beautiful way to experience the world of books in a safe, secure environment. I had read something about Calpurnia Tate that made me make a note to wait until she was 10 for that one, though of course I can’t remember why.
Trying to focus for now on classics – Secret Garden, Little Women, A Little Princess, Wizard of Oz, etc. My daughter was once a six-year-old advanced and voracious reader (now she is nine, still advanced and voracious, but better able to deal with complex or intense material), so I have spent the last three years desperately trying to keep ahead of her reading habit. My summer reading plans are to keep plowing through all the Newbery Award winners starting in 1922. We’re so excited about the Giver movie too, we read the series of books together and love them.


My 7th grader hasn’t read mysteries since American Girl Doll mystery books in 3rd and 4th grade.
Historical Fiction should be renamed Historical Adventure because typically it is a riveting story and not a dusty retelling of something boring from a long time ago. My daughter doesn’t tend to like Fantasy because she likes books set in modern times. I am too squeamish for Horror but my daughter and I like Supernatural like Twilight and Born at Midnight.

She liked A Wrinkle in Time so I bought her the whole series but she only liked the first book. Such a great project and love seeing my some blog friends too – Larissa and Nerd Mom Math Fun! Multicultural Children’s Book Day Jan 27thMulticultural Children's Book Day is January 27th! On the show, we talk about what that looks like in the daily grind: food, travel, writing, books, parenting, work, fashion, and everything in between. It’s that fantastically unique phase when you want to both grow up and stay a little kid, often in the same breath. I also love that there are fewer toys and more of a simple making-the-most-out-of-life approach when it comes to play. I love that there are some downright stellar books out there for this age, books that I want to read as much as her. This post would be a mile long if I included all 20, so I’ve also created a simple printable you can download listing all the books, if it’s easier for you to print it and carry with you to the bookstore or library. This past year she read and enjoyed books like Harry Potter (1-5), A Wrinkle in Time, The Phantom Tollbooth, Nancy Drew, and the like.
He rarely misses his life in the jungle—he thinks about TV shows he’s seen and about his friends. Along with his loyal sidekick—a knight who has been turned into an unfortunate combination of horse and cat—he embarks on an unforgettable, swashbuckling adventure to discover his true destiny.
With a little help from her cantankerous grandfather, an avid naturalist, Callie explores the natural world around her, she navigates the dangers of living with six brothers, and comes up against just what it means to be a girl. Would love for her to read this in time for us to see the movie together in August (anyone know if it’ll be kid-friendly?). Only two boys and two girls succeed for a secret mission, undercover and underground into hidden tunnels. Explorer Alexander West has just died under mysterious circumstances, but not before smuggling half of a strange map to his intrepid children.
Her latest book is Notes From a Blue Bike, and believes a passport is one of the world's greatest textbooks. While I was an advanced reader, I was also a very sensitive child, and I know my own book would have scared me a bit in its frank portrayal of frontier life. I’m not a mom yet, and while I know motherhood will be far from what I expect, I REALLY hope at least one of my kids is a reader.


Everyone room has a bookcase or a pile of books but like the Cobbler’s kids, mine have nothing good to read. I like the combination of Tokyo and mystery and will see if I can get her to give it a try. Laugh with the Moon also teaches about what we can do to help developing countries so I’d love for her to read that. I’ve heard great things about A Year without Autumn and my daughter is a fan of her Emily Windsnap series. My 6th grader finished Lions of Little Rock and The Best Bad Luck (by author); she really liked.both!
This is one thing I’m going to do more of this school year, walking around taking pics of kids and students reading! Then he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from her family, and she makes Ivan see their home through new eyes. Trapped in a tiny snow-covered sod house, isolated from family and neighbors, May must prepare for the oncoming winter. At the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened, the only rule is – there are no rules.
Frankweiler, Ella Enchanted, Rules, Percy Jackson, The Green Book, Pie, A Tree Grows in Brookyn, and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Several of these involve death, the beginnings of romantic attraction (though not much—I try to stay clear of that as much as possible for as long as I can), rejection, etc. In fact making a reading list for her was on my Weekly To Do list so you saved me half the work.
There are no descriptions of the books here but if you click on image, you can read the blurb at Amazon.
I usually let them find their own books, but believe it or mot, they find most of their books by looking at the library displays!
Also, I haven’t personally read ALL of these below yet, but if I haven’t, they come recommended by sources I trust. When Ruby arrives, change comes with her, and it’s up to Ivan to make it a change for the better. Then Louise suddenly passes away one morning—and Stella and Angel decide not to tell anyone. And their displays are deliberate — they are trying to get kids to read the good stuff! And if any book blogger leaves me a link to your book review, I’d be delighted to link to it.
There’s something about a slower build to the climax that kids these days have no patience for. I know she likes Sonnenblick so even though it looks like a baseball book, it’s worth a try.
