Books for Young Readers

“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”

J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

My daughter is almost twelve and is about to enter the sixth grade. She’s an extremely advanced reader (that’s putting it lightly – she tested as having a 12th grade reading level in like, the third grade!) She’s a voracious reader. So often her friends ask her for book recommendations.

She says all of these books are great for ages 8+, unless otherwise noted.

If you have or know a young reader, these are her book recommendations! I’m a proud Mommy. She’s a bright, loving, empathetic, responsible, free-thinking and creative young person. I cant believe we made her!

Books Recommendations for Young Readers

There are few gifts as special as a book. To a reader, new prose, new ideas, new adventures, and stories open up a world inside their mind and soul. I don’t think anyone can go wrong by gifting a new book to a friend, a daughter, a niece, a loved one. For my daughter’s 5th grade graduation I bought a hardbound version of “Wonder” that was signed by the author. I know it will be read and loved and grace her bookshelf for life.

I also personally love buying hardbound versions of her favorites (and she has many!) Nothing makes a more beautiful tribute to the work of authors and respect for their work than a hardbound version. Plus they just look pretty on a bookshelf! Hint: take the cover off. The book without the cover usually looks so much prettier on a shelf! 🙂

Mommy & Me Outfits

As long as my little girl will dress like me, I will take it. She wears my shoe size so she literally can dress like me (she’s wearing my shoes in this photo!) These are the new outfits from Lilly Pulitzer’s Summer Remix. They have great styles for matching outfits. Summer is a great time to buy Lilly Pulitzer Mommy and Me styles – they are lightweight, full of vibrant color and make for fun summer family photos!

Sizing note: I am wearing a Size Small and my daughter is wearing the Lilly Pulitzer Mini Essie Dress. She’s super tall so I would size up for height, otherwise, that size fit her perfectly.
