message 1: by Sumiyeh (new)

Sumiyeh Haqtalab The Harry Potter series are amazing, but since reading them when they first came out almost 15 years ago, I have discovered other series for young readers that are equally amazing. some of them are named here, Rick Riordan and Gail Carson Levine for example, but others that I've found include Charlie Fletcher and the Stone Heart series also read and brought to life by Jim Dale who did the Harry Potter series; any of the Gary Paulsen Hatchet series! I have a reluctant 10-year old reader and these excellent stories really bolster his vocabulary and grasp of intelligent plots and characters, although he's not reading them himself. To by quite honest, I enjoy these YA reads just about as much as any "adult" reads that I've encountered in past years!


message 2: by Celia (new)

Celia Harry Potter is universal...but I don't think an eleven year old will fully understand books 3-7 because that's when the story hits a whole new level and the plot becomes really intricate and detailed. There are some great books on this list though.


message 3: by Rea (new)

Rea K I'm not sure i'd recommend Hotel by Arhtur Hailey for an eight year old... it's a bit mature for that age.

Totally agree. I myself had a hard time understand everything!!


message 5: by Lee (new)

Lee What is going on when someone called 'Judy Mooring' is recommending anti-vaxxing books for children? All of this person's recommendations should be removed as they are clearly not concerned about finding great books for eleven year olds to read.
