Reads for Tweens, Find Out What Your Kids are Reading!

Posted by on April 27, 2012

Reads 4 Tweens offers book reviews aimed at the adults who care about the books that kids aged 8 to 12 (give or take a few years) might be reading. While there’s no reason kids shouldn’t explore the site, the reviews are full of spoilers—they’re intended to inform about content, not explicitly persuade anyone to read the book.

It’s also intended to provide a place where parents, grandparents, teachers, librarians, and anyone else who cares can talk about the issues that arise with young readers.

I love this site because we had a hard time with finding appropriate content for our precocious reader when he was younger. This site clues parents in to the content of the books that their children are reading and makes recommendations for books they might enjoy.

See what she had to say about Hapenny Magick.

    Oh thank you for posting this. This site looks excellent, and will hopefully help us find good books to recommend to our ten year old son. Our daughter was easy. When she was a tween, I read everything she read, and she read a lot of things I’d read as a girl. And now, I just take out a stack of books from the library and we both read them (she’s 14). But our son is pickier, and we’ve had a tough time moving him into books that reflect his reading ability. He’s started Hunger Games and is loving it, but I’m already looking ahead to what to nudge him towards next to keep the reading going now that he’s willing to attempt longer and more complicated books.

    What a useful site! I have a good nine-year-old reader who is currently reading his TWENTY-FOURTH Beast Quest. Would love to move him on to something else…
