I've decided to get all my nieces and nephews books for Xmas this year. Seeing I will have a newborn around Xmas I'm getting organised early. I've got books for most of the kids except an almost 7 year old boy and a girl who u can't remember if she will be 6 1/2 or 7 1/2!! Can anyone with kids around that age give me some ideas on books suitable for them? Ideally I would like to get them a set of books and only want to spend about $20 each.

I just bought my daughter ( turning 7) the Billy B Brown treasure chest of books which was about $20-$22 . She absolutely loves them and so do her friends. As for boys... Ah I can't help you on that

Billie B Brown is definitely more for younger readers - DD is 6 and is finding them a bit easy, but we do love the stories. I'd say the "Go Girl" series would be good for 8 yo girls.
DD has recently enjoyed the Faraway Tree series and the Naughtiest Girl in the School series - both by Enid Blyton. "Ivy & Bean" also. Paul Jennings and Morris Glietzman are good authors.
If you need more ideas I'll go have a look at DD's bookshelf and come back!

DD is 8 and the Billie B Brown books were definitely good for her as a 6-year-old. Same with the "Pearlie," books by Wendy Harmer. She's outgrown them both now - they're too babyish for her, and I haven't got a particularly "grown up," little girl...
At 7/8 she's been more into Roald Dahl and has just started on Harry Potter.

My dd1 is 6 and she likes the billie
B brown books for the stories as she is very girly. She is an advanced reader and they are easy but she still likes them. There are other series about princesses and ballerinas but I can't remember the names right now.
My ds2 likes a few soccer series and the samurai kids:

thanks everyone. mmm, will have to give the 6-7 year old the billy books. i also have a set of alice miranda books for another niece that is 9. is that too young for her??

Billie B Brown is perfect for a 6 year old. My 8 year old likes Alice Miranda, so that might be okay for the 9 year old. She loves Andy Griffiths books, so something like the 13 Storey Treehouse might work better for a 9 year old.

I think Alice Miranda should be fine for the 9-year-old... it's more about school-based friendships and such.
