Top Books for Kids Ages 5-7
I have a 7-year-old that has really blossomed as a reader this year. He loves it and I want to fuel that love. Getting books from the library and the school is awesome. I also want to create a nice little home library for him and the other siblings to enjoy, so I’m loving this list of book recommendations!
We polled you, our readers, about the best books for children ages 5-7 and we got some great ideas! One very important tip (that many of you mentioned) is to offer books and other reading materials about things that interest YOUR child!
If you happen to be in your child’s classroom every now and then, you know that there is quite a range of reading levels. This list is intended to give you some great ideas of books in a variety of reading levels typical for this age, so not every book will be the best for every child.
Start with books that you know will be fun for your child! Build their confidence! Then continue to provide more reading materials in subjects and genres that your child seems to enjoy.
In no particular order…
Here are 42 of the best books out there for kids ages 5-7:
Magic Tree House – Fun series to get them started on!
Junie B. Jones – My sons second grade teacher introduced him to these and her loved them. He thought they were so funny. Another great series.
Minecraft Books – Good way to get your video game loving kids interested in reading.
Where the Sidewalk Ends – I loved Shel Silverstein as a kid, I was thrilled to find that my boys like his poems too.
There are so many great books for children, I couldn’t include them all. So please feel free to share your favorites in the comments!
If your child is considered a beginner reader, I recommend the BOB books. Great way to start them out! You might also try introducing comic books or graphic novels since they include a lot of engaging pictures.
My son’s school teachers have utilized the free Raz-Kids app and he really enjoys that too. There are lots of eBooks on there with audio and interactive comprehension quizzes at all reading levels. I just hand over the tablet and he starts listening to and reading all sorts of books.
Some of you have suggested turning on the subtitles on your TV and encouraging reading on video games as more ways to encourage reading. Whatever works!
