INSIDE : Check out our family Favorite Elementary Aged Children’s Books for both girls and boys.
A few months ago, I had a reader email asking me what my favorite children’s books were. I loved this question and the more I thought about it, the more my book list grew! I have always done a lot of reading with my kiddos and am so happy to say that now that they are old enough to do some reading of their own, they enjoy it! Today, I am sharing my Favorite Elementary Aged Children’s Books.

Favorite Beginner Short Chapter Books
My daughter is into small chapter books in a big way. But she also loves books full of imagination and curiosity. Any book I find that encourages a brave creative spirit, I know she will love. That’s why she adores Rosie Revere, Engineer. She tries to recreate some of Rosie’s inventions… except I won’t go buy her a propeller much to her dismay – HA.
My son is into all things adventurous, imaginative and boy. I have adored all the Chris Van Dussen books, “If I built a car” “If I built a house” and “A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee”. We love all his books. They are fun to read and such fun illustrations.
Favorite Activity + Learning Books
During the summer time, we have been going through these awesome Summer Brain Quest books and I have LOVED them. And even more importantly, my kiddos have LOVED doing them. We typically put on a timer for about 15 to 20 minutes and work on their grade appropriate books. Their favorite part is that after completing a page, they put a sticker along a map to show their progression.
Also any time we go out to a restaurant, I bring a “paint by sticker book.” I love doing them as much as the kids, do!
