Books for Children

{
}

Children attain varying levels of literacy at different ages and not all girls and boys will be confident making the transition to independent reading. The books suggested here are suitable for children aged 8 – 12, however we suggest that parents, carers, teachers and librarians might want to review content for suitability and reading level appropriateness for each individual child. As children become independent readers introduce them to entertaining and inspiring writers so reading becomes an activity they want to do. Popular storytellers such us Cathy Cassidy, Eoin Colfer, Roald Dahl, Morris Gleitzman and Jeff Kinney are examples of authors who write in an engaging way and are enjoyed by both children and adults.
