Children/Middle Grade Book Suggestions

Post by hsimone » 12 Sep 2018, 09:14

Do you have any suggestions for books to read this month that would fall under children/middle grade?

There are definitely many options out there, from classics to newly-released reads. Here are some that came to my mind:
  • Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
  • A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
  • Matilda by Roald Dahl
  • Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
  • The Lorax by Dr. Seuss
  • Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein
:library:

Goodreads is also a good resource in choosing what to read. These links might be helpful:

- https://www.goodreads.com/list/tag/children

If it were October, I would suggest Small Spaces by Katherine Arden! (It would also be what I would be reading!)

Sadly, it does not come out until the last week of this month.
(Yes, I know this is odd, but I am absolutely positive that I will love it just as much as her Winternight Trilogy.)



As it is not October, I would suggest...
The Fablehaven series (or the new continued Fablehaven series)
Harry Potter (at least the early ones)
Or just a reread of Alice.Image

I have read "Charlotte's Web" by E.B. White and "Matilda" by Roald Dahl and loved them both.

If we do spooky/Halloween-type books next month, you could read Small Spaces by Katherine Arden. :)

Ah, I've been wanting to read the Fablehaven series. Good suggestion! Harry Potter is pretty awesome :D

I love Harry Potter. I have yet to read the Fablehaven series, but it's on my list!

I actually started reading The Bigfoot Paradox by Rebecca Coyte, which was a recent Book of the Day. gali, I think you've read this one. It's off to a nice start! :)

It's definitely a fun and unique premise. I'm about halfway and it's still a nice one to read. :)
