50 Best Books for 11-and 12-Year-Olds

20 Apr


I am loving what Brightly has to offer – great reading lists, fun activities for families and grown-up advice for parenting. Recently, they’ve created some awesome reading lists for specific age groups – including The 50 Best Books for 5-and 6-Year-Olds, The 50 Best Books for 7-and 8-Year-OldsThe 50 Best Books for 9-and 10-Year-Olds and the list we’re focusing on: The 50 Best Books for 11-and 12-Year-Olds.

These lists are curated by children’s literature experts including librarians, teachers, book sellers, editors and more. And granted, every book on the list might not be right for every 11- and 12-year-old, but there are some great titles on this list to choose from. What I really enjoyed was the nice mix between new titles and classic titles, the diversity of genres and the diversity of characters and settings. I’ve read 36 out of the 50 titles and really enjoyed them and have no doubt tweens would really enjoy them too!

Even better news for you – Brightly is offering a free giveaway of 50 best books for the kids in your life! Sign up today!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I’m thankful this year for a new job and though it has its challenges, I’m learning a lot and enjoying this new chapter in my career! I’m also thankful to my family and friends who love me unconditionally.  I’m lucky enough to spend the day with some of my family! Have a safe and happy holiday!
