Book reviews from tots to tweens

As many of your know, I love nothing more than burying my head in a good book and lucky for me my children feel the same way. I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting reads, for both them and me!

With a little help from my three girls,today I’m reviewing four children’s books covering ages from toddler through to tween. Because what’s better than children’s book reviews if not by children themselves?!

More book reviews for different reading stages and ages

More book reviews for different reading stages and ages - Ever-changing Life of a Mum

I’m back today with a few more book reviews for children of different reading stages and ages.

I am reviewing three books covering toddlers, young children and tweens … with a little help from my three daughters. I hope that by offering opinions from my own children, it essentially gives other parents a really insight into what kids really think of some of the books that are available to them – these are essentially book reviews by kids for kids.

Previously on the blog, I have covered the topics of how to encourage young people to read throughout their school years, even during the school holidays – I learned a great deal from these guest posts by Dymocks Literacy Expert Ryan Spencer.

At my request, Dymocks also provided a list of book recommendations for different age groups in these posts and I recently received a book for each of my girls, who are aged one, seven and 11, to review.

You can also read my past book reviews for different reading stages here.

This follows on from last month’s opportunity to ask Dymocks Literacy Expert and State Director of the Australian Literacy Educator’s Association, Ryan Spencer a few questions about encouraging young people to read throughout the school years and beyond.

I learned a great deal from this guest post and was rather happy when I realised that I already have a few of the reading tips and strategies mentioned in place with my girls.

As part of this guest post, Dymocks provided a great list of book recommendations for different age groups and I was lucky enough to receive a book for each of my girls, who are aged one, six and 11, to review.
