If you’re looking for books to give as gifts for readers aged 12-14 this festive season, I’ve got a shopping list for you!
Every year I ask the Your Kid’s Next Read Facebook community to share the ONE book they’re buying as a gift in different age groups, so I can pull them together in one handy book list.
This year, we’re calling them the Your Kid’s Next Read #Bookstive lists and this one is the list of gift books for 10-12 year olds. (Find links to book lists for younger readers at the end of this post.)
It’s a collection of recommendations from the group as well as from team members Megan Daley, Allison Rushby and me. Click the title of the book to read more about it, and to purchase*.
Hope it helps!
