Scholastic guide: find books kids enjoy reading (all ages)

This month we received a surprise from our friends at Scholastic---books! Scholastic sent us a few advanced young readers books for my son to enjoy including:

Note: I received product sample for review purpose. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

  • Deadzone (Horizon, Book 2): Jennifer A. Nielsen
  • The Mage (Foxcraft, Book 3): Inbali Iserles
  • The Witch Boy (graphic novel) — Molly Ostertag

Don't these books look like a great read? I'll have to check them out myself after my son's done. I like that the books offer fun adventures with a twist, that my son can get into. My son enjoys reading these types of books.

Do you know the types of books your child enjoys reading?

According to the 6th Edition, Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report:

About one-third of U.S. children read books for fun 5-7 days a week; however, 41% of kids need help finding books to read for fun.

That to me is a real shame. I strongly encourage families to do better at finding books their kids can enjoy reading. At anytime. Not just for a reading assignment or homework. Trust me, once your child has different books they can enjoy reading, it won't be a problem for them to read anything.

To help you find books for your child to enjoy, the Scholastic experts have provided a holiday gift guide checklist for ages (0-17) based on research on what kids want in books.

The Scholastic holiday books checklist comes from the latest Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report: 6th Edition. This gift guide also features 8 titles from School Library Journal’s recently released “Best of 2017” books.

Designed for parents, caregivers, family members and friends, the gift guide highlights:

  • The top five things kids want in books are: “a good story,” “books that make me laugh,” “explore pace I have never been,” “make think and feel” and “inspire me to do something good”
  • 5 book picks for each age group including: ages 0-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-11, 12-14 and 15-17.
  • Top titles include: Pig the Pug, Princess Truly, Harry Potter (Illustrated Edition) and more.
