Some more books for 7 weeks of Summer Holidays

Back on popular demand from my last blog 7 interesting books for the 7 weeks of summer holidays here are some more books that I recommend for your sweetest little bookworms. After-all a bookworm's life is one open book after another, isn't it. Happy reading!

 

#1 Best Friends by Jacqueline Wilson 

What I liked in the book  

Jacqueline stories are usually around family related problems or kids issues on friendship. Like for example, in this book she revolves around the central concept – “Can Gemma stand it when Alice starts making new friends?” Most kids in the age group of 5-10 can relate to this and that's why I think its a must read for every child.

Age suited :  7-10 years

 

#2 Who Was Steve Jobs? by Patricia Brennan Demuth

What I liked in the book  

A fascinating story, an easy read - the perfect way to introduce the kids into the lives of these famous geniuses. There are many biographies in this series. See your child’s interest and pick the icon she wants to read about.

Age suited :  6-10 years

#3 Stories of Pirates by Russell Punter 

What I liked in the book  

The illustrations are very colorful and lively. We found it a really engaging book which ignites the desire to read. Once you open the book you dont feel like putting it down. One of the reviews rightly says “'Irresistible for children learning to read' and older I would say. Try one for yourself and write back.

Age suited :  5-9 years

 

#4 Squiggle Takes a Walk by Natasha Sharma

What I liked in the book  

One of the cutest books I have read so far in this age group, excellent concept. Your kid is sure to get excited about punctuation marks and get all the basics right. There are many other interesting book by the author like the ‘Hole book’, ‘365 Words in Delhi’ etc.

Age suited :  7-10 years

 

#5 Frindle by Andrew Clements

What I liked in the book  

This book promises to be a quirky, imaginative tale about creative thoughts and power of words that will have the readers inventing their own works. We are yet to read this book as it’s on its way being shipped by Amazon.

Age suited :  7-10 years

 

#6 The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Chronicles of Narnia)  by by Hiawyn Oram

What I liked in the book  

The picture book version is a great way to introduce the kids to the magic of Narnia. This one is a bit expensive, so you may like to rent it from the library. Also make this more memorable by watching the movies once the book is done.

Age suited :  7-all ages

You can order these easily online too. Most of them are under Rs 300. If your kids have gotten onto kindle, then you can try the kindle version also.

 

Do write back to me about your experiences with these books, the joy you felt when you introduced a new series to your child and when she fell in love with the series.
