Books 7 Year Olds LoveReading with a 7 year old is so much fun because they have a great sense of humor and are getting really good at predicting what might come next. This is the perfect age for a two-part reading adventure: having them read to you to practice their fluency, and then reading to them. It’s time to tackle some really fun books at this age! Here are my picks for the best books  7 year olds will love… and you will, too!

[easyazon-link asin=”038070918X” locale=”us”]Beezus and Ramona[/easyazon-link], by Beverly Cleary: Ramona is the heroine of many of Cleary’s books, but in this one her older sister Beezus shares her view of life with Ramona — it can be challenging to live with a little sister with so much spunk! Whether your child is an older or younger sibling, they will see some of your family in this pair!

[easyazon-link asin=”0380709171″ locale=”us”]Henry and Ribsy[/easyazon-link], by Beverly Cleary: I don’t think that girls need to read books about girls; and boys about boys, BUT this is a great counterpart to Ramona. Henry, his crazy dog Ribsy, and his paper route are all part of this wonderful chapter book. One warning: The chapters are long! Depending on your reading allotment, you may want to read a certain number of pages rather than a whole chapter!

[easyazon-link asin=”0064410048″ locale=”us”]The Mouse and the Motorcycle[/easyazon-link], by Beverly Cleary: Sorry, one more Cleary series that has to be mentioned! Ralph and his motorcycle are totally different characters from Ramona, Henry and the Klickitat Street crew. You will love his adventures in a hotel and a school!

[easyazon-link asin=”1603208429″ locale=”us”]Time for Kids Big Book of Why[/easyazon-link], by Time Editors: Kids this age love knowing why things are how they are. This book has great photos and a ton of useful and interesting information. Your child will love to pore over it….it’s great for in the car, when they just have a few minutes to get a snippet of information and maybe not time for a whole chapter.

[easyazon-link asin=”0394800931″ locale=”us”]My Book About Me[/easyazon-link], by Dr. Seuss: This one isn’t so much for reading as for your child to complete by him/her self. What time do they like to get up? What do they like best about themselves? it will stretch their reading and writing talents and be such a fun keepsake to look back on!

[easyazon-link asin=”0375813659″ locale=”us”]Magic Tree House[/easyazon-link], by Mary Pope Osborne: These books are just the right length for moms and kids to share. Each book transports you to another time period, from the Revolutionary War to pirates to when dinosaurs walked the earth. They’re full of just enough facts to really teach your child something, without being dry. Note: at first it seems you have to read them in order, but you don’t. Pick any time period/topic that interests your child!

[easyazon-link asin=”0448411326″ locale=”us”]Pirate School[/easyazon-link], by Cathy East Dubowksi: These young school pirates are learning to be brave…and tough… as they search for a treasure map. But then they learn an even more valuable lesson about friendship.

[easyazon-link asin=”0590449729″ locale=”us”]Two Crazy Pigs[/easyazon-link], by Karen Berman Nagel: These pigs decide to take their crazy antics to another farm. Everyone is going to miss them!

[easyazon-link asin=”0316058432″ locale=”us”]Mr. Popper’s Penguins[/easyazon-link], by Richard Atwater: Even though Jim Carrey is very funny in the movie, I recommend you read this fantastic book. It’s an almost entirely different story, but just as engaging!

[easyazon-link asin=”0142402494″ locale=”us”]Pippi Longstocking[/easyazon-link], by Astrid Lindgren : With her crazy red pigtails and tights, Pippi is a character that almost everyone recognizes. Reading about her adventures will remind you why she has been such an enduring and delightful character!
