I’m so excited about today’s guest blogger – my 11-year-old daughter, Charlotte. One of the most common questions I get from friends is what books I recommend for their kids. I look to my kids to help me make those recs, so I thought it would be really fun to share their suggestions here.
So, I’ll let Charlotte tell you what she’s been reading lately…
I have always loved to read. I get book ideas from the books that my friends love, and what my mom happens to find. So here is the list of my recent top five favorite books.
- From The Desk Of Zoe Washington, by Janae Marks. What I loved about this book was that Zoe Washington (the main character) is independent and fierce, but also, sweet and caring. This is a heart warming story that will make your day a cup sweeter.
- The War That Saved My Life and The War I Finally Won, by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley. I loved how in these books you get to see the main character Ada really find herself and get to know who she is. This bittersweet two-part series is an incredible story about finding who you are.
- Harbor Me, by Jacqueline Woodson. In this book, each of the main characters shares interesting life stories. This book teaches you the importance of trust and friendship. In this story, you get to see an amazing friendship grow throughout the book.
- Ghost, by Jason Reynolds. In this book (the first in a series) you read how one team can bring four friends together for good. What I liked about this book was that you can see how a few people can impact your life. It’s about finding your place in life and feeling welcome.
- Brown Girl Dreaming, by Jacqueline Woodson. I love that this book is poetry and one of my goals as a reader is to try and read different kinds of text. I also loved that even though it is poetry, it tells a great story. This is an inspiring story about accepting and loving who you are.
I hope you liked this list of books. What else would you recommend for me to read?
