The Best Reads for Children’s Book Week

We’re finishing out Children’s Book Week with our favorite book finds. Overall, as I’ve mentioned about before, it’s important to me that my kids have books to read in their free time that they enjoy. Moreover, they get so much school work that I like for this to be a nice relaxing activity for them. Henceforth, children’s book week ends on the 7th this month and it’s a great reminder to take that time and pick up a book to enjoy.


Firstly, there are reads that can help with teaching young readers important life lessons. Reading levels aren’t a factor in this category, because these stories can be told in various different forms. For instance, in chapter books, a picture book, graphic novels or fairy tales.

Furthermore, educational lessons are taught in school, but there are things children learn at home that maybe are better told through a great book for young minds such as personal care and racial equality! For example, bright illustrations and any grade level in school life can have books that can impact early childhood and older children all alike. Specifically, books have come a long way over the years and I am so pleasantly surprised with the options these days, especially for young adult readers.

Full of Fantasy

Secondly, allowing our children time to use their imaginations after learning tough lessons all day is vital. For example, math and history takes up a lot of their brains. Moreover, the fantasy aspect of books keeps them hopeful and there’s nothing wrong with a great imagination.

Doing so allows for a great escape from the stresses of the day. Specifically, it’s what makes things more fun! Some of the best children’s books are stories where the wildest things happen and they can not just in a story. Moreover, we want our children to have big dreams and goals and learn that they can accomplish anything they put their minds to! After all, we are raising the next generation of leaders.


Finally, while our children get so much homework and assigned story books, I think it’s important to have a great escape for them in their free time from school work and activities. For instance, the joy of reading can be learned early on, which is great to instill in young children.

Moreover, in our house, books are an escape from reality and if that means they need an interactive book or a classic tale, they can choose to read whatever their hearts desires. For example, even 20 minutes a day can make such a difference. My kids are older now, so they love Rick Riordan and the Harry Potter Series, as well as the Chronicles of Narnia. But Dr. Seuss and Eric Carle reads are fun for younger children!

Furthermore, this is a fun read for tweens! It’s very internet-based and on trend with everything tweens and teens go through these days. You feel like an adult, but you’re not quite there yet and this book does a great job of capturing that feeling.
Moreover, I had to snag a good read for the boys that are tweens! It’s an inspiring read about a boy who has big soccer dreams and if you’re a sports fan, you’ll love it!
