Today you’ll find over 100 recommended books for 8-10 year olds!
Have I mentioned how much I love the book lists from Erika at What Do We Do All Day? Here’s a great list of recommended books for 8-year-olds.
Mia at Pragmatic Mom is another book list pro. I can’t believe the variety she comes up with! Check out her list of gentle chapter books for young girls. Of course, she also has a list of chapter books for young boys. You might also be interested in a list of chapter books recommended by her third grade son.
In this list, Pragmatic Mom has arranged Newberry award-winning books by grade appropriateness. So useful!
In this post from Afterschool for Smartypants, you’ll find fiction, nonfiction, and poetry recommendations.
Don’t forget about picture books! You can find many picture books with themes appropriate for older kids. I love Pragmatic Mom’s list of 23 picture books for fifth graders. Younger kids will enjoy them as well.
Picture books are a terrific way to introduce nonfiction topics to kids. This is such a wonderful, varied list of nonfiction picture books from Children’s Books and Reading.
This series of nonfiction books was very popular in my classroom of third, fourth, and fifth graders.
Finally, Growing Book by Book has some amazing book lists too! You don’t want to miss this fun list of books to get kids excited about words.
