Does anyone have a DD or DS this age who can weigh in? The kids I'm thinking of are both at the highest reading level for their age group. Do you think Goosebumps would be fine, or too scary? Any other suggestions for books for kids that age would be gladly accepted!

Are Goosebumps books appropriate for 7/8 year olds?

I just asked my OH who is a grade 3/4 teacher if his kids read Goosbumps.... He said they are a bit young for it but some of the better readers attempt them. He didn't think kids found them scary- stuff they don't wanna hear goes over their heads.

I think they're fine. At that age mine were reading Harry potter too.

I read them when I was 8.

I read them at that age along with "scarier" books by Christopher Pike and Diana Ho.
My DS is 8 and I think he would probably like them, shame I chucked out my collection ages ago.

Yep. DS was reading them in the school library at 6.5 so I got a whole heap for him second hand.
Other than that he likes the Andy Griffiths books. The "Just" series (Just Disgusting, Just McBeth, Just Tricking, etc), What Bumasaur is That, The Bad Book and the Tree House series are his favourites. He also liked the Zac Powers books.

Both my 6 yo and 9 yo read them. DH thinks 9 yo is a bit too old now to read them.
