Best Books for Kids

When I tell my kids we’re headed to the library, they get so excited, but when we get there, the rows of shelves can become quickly overwhelming. That’s why I like to have themed lists of our favorite¬†best books for kids on hand – lists of books I know my kids will love on the topics they’re currently interested in reading about.

Here are some of the lists of books for kids that we’ve developed over the past few years – books my kids have loved and want to read time and time again!¬†

To make it easy to find a list of books for kids that your kids will love, I’ve split the lists up into categories: books for preschoolers, books for early readers, books for elementary kids, books for middle school kids, and holiday books for kids.
