Books 10 Year Olds Will Love

best books for 10 year oldsYour 10 year old has moved on to much more complex books and plots. You’ll find that they also love books about “them,” as in books about kids their age and their trials at school and also historical fiction can be a winner. It’s great if you can really get them talking about the books to make sure they are retaining and not just attempting to motor through.

Another thing to keep in mind is that your child may start a book that everyone else has raved about and find it’s not for them. I encourage you to let them abandon it and try something new instead of forcing them to read something that’s not catching their attention.

Here are some books 10 year olds will love!
