Why 7th grade? Because there’s an entirely new category of literature out there for older kids, so get these books in before they’re ready to move on from talking mice and middle-grade folly. Whether reading independently or as a read-aloud, these are books your kids will remember for a lifetime.
I fell in love with books as a little girl sitting in the aisles of our local library where my dad worked. Stories weren’t just ink on paper, they were proof that my imagined suspicions were true; our world was full of adventure and beauty beyond what my young mind could create. From the pages of books, I learned that everyone is living a story that’s worth telling. In 2002, when my first daughter was born, it was a natural transition to share my love of books with her, and then a few years later my next two daughters as well.
We are now a family of five who loves a great read. My appreciation for a well-told story (and the authors who write them) have only deepened over the years. Books still remind me that our world is full of so much more than meets the eye. It’s our pleasure to share our family’s Bookshelf with you. Please don’t hesitate to email me with more suggestions or ideas. We’re always on the lookout for great new authors too!
