    Default What are your kids reading?

    I'm after ideas for Christmas, but thought by doing this we can all share suggestions with each other.

    So bearing in mind that my kids are very good readers (DS2's yearly report yesterday described him as a "voracious reader" lol), this is some of my kids current faves...

    13yo DS-
    -The Hobbit
    -Eragon series
    -Hunger Games series
    -Maze Runner series (my kids like series'!)
    -He's also started dabbling in some Stephen King. He's read The Talisman, and The Eye of the Dragon. If any SK fans have some other age appropriate suggestions, feel free to let me know!

    10yo DD-
    -Chocolate Box series by Cathy Cassidy
    -David Walliams stories- Demon Dentist etc
    -Narnia chronicles
    -Cats of Tanglewood Forest
    -School for Good and Evil series
    -Goosebumps books
    -I've also been getting her into some classics- Playing Beatie Bow, Dot and the Kangaroo, Bridge to Terabithia, Tale of Despereaux, Hating Alison Ashley, and kids editions of Shakespeare.

    8yo DS-
    -Skulduggery Pleasant series
    -'Thirteen' series
    - x storey treehouse books
    -Roald Dahl books


    So what are your kids reading?

    Default What are your kids reading?

    DS is 5 and can't read well independently yet, but we have been reading the following together at bed time:

    Zac Power
    EJ12
    Geronimo Stilton
    The Odyssey (a kid's version!)
    Enid Blyton (Faraway Tree & Wishing Chair)
    A few Roald Dahls
    Pokemon, Teen Titans, Batman and Skylander comics/graphic novels
    Lots of non fic, especially science, history and space related.

    We have all boys: 5, 3 and 1. We read anything to do with farms - especially the Fergus the Tractor books, Daddy's machinery classified magazines, dinosaur books (DS1 is going to be a fossil finder), and lots of lift the flap - my kids never really got into the touch and feel type books.

    Great idea. Would love suggestions for classic kid's chapter books for 4 year old. We loved May Gibbs (Snugglepot & Cuddlepie). Need more!

    I love Emily Rodda's 3 door series. If you haven't cracked those open give them a go. Very entertaining.

    Ohh yes, Deltora Quest, and the Three Doors... DS1 loves these!

    Also Percy Jackson series. He's tried Heroes of Olympus but only read the first 2 I think for some reason.
