I know there are a lot of you out there who are grandparents. You probably rely on your sons and daughters to send hints about books that would be perfect for the kids. I can’t help you will all ages, but this will be a start. I will be posting a list of book ideas for younger kids next week.
My 10 year-old grandson LOVES this book and gives it to all his friends! It’s about a train, a key, and a treasure. Boom! Paper and hardback available.
SERAFINA AND THE BLACK CLOAK, by Robert Beatty, is being made into a Disney movie. The action takes place at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina! It’s become a real hit all over the country. Sequel is coming out in August. Available in both paper and hardback.
THE ONE AND ONLY IVAN is based on a true story about a captive gorilla and is told from the point of view of the gorilla. It’s a NYT bestseller, and it’s a Newberry Medal winner. Win/win. Perfect. Available in paper or hardback.
And for all the young wizards out there who loved Harry Potter, the HOGWARTS LIBRARY is the perfect gift. Very affordable .
