Best Books for 6-8 year olds
I spoke to a bunch of 6-, 7-, and 8-year-old boys and their parents to compile this list of kid-approved books. I included a mix of levels on this list, but most of the books are considered chapter books. They can be read by newly independent readers or would work well as a family read-aloud. Hilarity reigns in this weird and wacky school with teachers like crazy Ms. Daisy, Mr. Klutz, and Miss Small.
The age of 6 is a tender age that requires books filled with fun , excitement, and adventure to encourage kids to continue learning and improving their reading skills. Since not everyone is at the same reading level at age 6, each child requires a different type of book. This list encompasses nearly every storyline you can find that could be appealing to an elementary school student and even some that will show them different worlds and situations. Some books are suited for educational purposes and learning, full of fun pictures and exciting facts. Others tell tales about characters who are super relatable and go on adventures that your child will feel they can go on, too.
One of the reasons is that those lists are by far the most popular on the blog. They get shared with other parents with a much higher frequency than my picture book lists. However, you can still find loads of interest specific picture book lists, all listed in the master index. It goes without saying that a 6 year old will enjoy picture books on a different level than a 3 year old. They can read subtext more clearly, understand the humor in irony, and relate to emotional context.
The sensational stories in this dazzling list of the 10 best books for 6-year-olds are sure to inspire a lifelong love of books in young readers. Discover some of the best children's authors - including Julia Donaldson, Roald Dahl and Michael Rosen - and pore over plenty of stunning illustrations in these brilliant books. Julia Donaldson, the bestselling author of The Gruffalo , presents this wonderful story starring Polly, who sets up a pets' holiday home for the summer and has to contend with greedy guinea pigs, pesky parrots and ssslithering sssnakes!

Books to Read to a Six-Year-Old
Every product is independently selected by obsessive editors. At 6 years old, most children are starting to learn to read on their own more on that below. - For some children this involves starting with basic books with simpler and fewer words; while others take to reading with speedy gusto, zipping through picture books and straight onto chapter books.
Each night I read to my daughters before bedtime — I spend around 20 to 30 minutes with each one. The youngest is six and just starting to grasp the fundamentals of reading. Six is a difficult age to gauge. Her brain is processing information at an incredible speed but she still really appreciates the visual aspect of books. With both children, I have found it wise to not underestimate their ability to absorb stories of conflict and death. Old fashioned legends and folk tales are filled with murder and mayhem, but these stories have been around for centuries for a good reason — children like them. Roald Dahl knew this and there are horrible events in all his books.
