Growing up, I LOVED The Boxcar Children and all things Ramona and OF COURSE The Baby-Sitters Club. Like a totally normal 10-year-old, I would lie behind our sofa, squeezing against the wall, and read for hours — hidden from the rest of the world.
But, to be honest, I’ve been having a hard time getting the boys into chapter books. They still love picture books (the New York Times says you’re never too old), and Toby enjoyed Charlotte’s Web — but I want to find more that will really excite them.
So question for the group:
What do the middle grade kids in your life like to read? I would so appreciate recommendations!
