Need good reads for your kids or kids at heart? Here are some more fun books:
Nikolas & Company. (Pictured above). A group of young orphans take the ride of their life and discover a magical world of adventure and danger in the past … and on the moon! Very fun premise for a story. Check out the website. It’s an amazing design. Your kids will love the graphics. Author Kevin McGill is currently giving away 1,000 copies of his books, too. “Take the ride.” Check out his interview on the news!
Another great series of books is the Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth. This series is found in the Young Adult section, so it is more suited for 12 and up. Divergent takes place is post-apocalyptic dystopian Chicago. A world full of strife and tough decisions. At the age of 16 each child must choose whether to stay with his or her family and faction or chose a different life and never see loved ones again. I was hooked from page one, and bought the second book Insurgent as soon as I finished the last word of Divergent. A must read for fans of all ages (over 12…)!
Another great series for readers of all ages is The Land of Elyon by Patrick Carman. A synopsis is here. I have enjoyed the books in the series I have read. Looking forward to finishing the series. And the 39 Clues series I recommended yesterday is written by the same author. I am looking forward to reading more of his books.
For moms, aside from all the great fiction books, I recommend checking out Tracey Eyster’s upcoming book, Be the Mom. It will be available soon, but you can pre-order it. And you can answer the question: “Are you an eagle or a turkey?”
Linda wrote in about the Magic Tree House books, a fun adventure series for kids with a magical tree house that transports a brother and sister into history. Meet Mozart, Da Vinci and more…
