Book suggestions for 10 year old girl please

Recommended Posts

She is a competent reader. She enjoys reading about family life and her most favourite books so far have been 'All of a Kind Family' series by Sydney Taylor. She told me she wants something to read that she doesn't have to try too hard - just for fun. Any thoughts please?

Honestly, I usually am more on the ball when it comes to booklists, but my brain is utterly fried until next week when we hand in our high school application at the homeschool office. IN PERSON, no way am I trusting that to the vagaries of the USPS.

She will love the Betsy-Tacy series!


The reading level of them gets harder as the character gets older, so at some point she may lose interest until she gets a little older.  But the first half of them at least should be fine.  Sweetest series!  My girls' favorite.


(In fact, the first few books might even feel a little young, but you have to start with them to get to know the characters.   :))
