Book Moms Top Picks 12 years and up...

About 10 months ago we did a series of posts of our Top Picks and somehow this post was never published! Sorry for the extended delay but here are our top picks for kids 12 years and up!

At the top of our list is:

The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

It is also time for your child to start reading some classic literature. These are great ones to start with but it's easy to get a list of Classic Literature from your local library. As always, it's important that you know and understand your child and are prepared to have a gospel discussion surrounding the contents of the book. My son received a summer reading list for entering 6th grade and all of these were on the list!

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

The Call of the Wild by Jack London

A couple of other series we like:

Hunter Brown - The CodeBearers Series by the Miller Brothers

The Chiveis Trilogy by Bryan Litfin (may be better suited for 16 and up) The third book in the trilogy is to be published next year.

We also like:
Wayne Batson and Sigmund Brouwer as authors. While we have not read every book by these authors we have read many of their books and have enjoyed their work. As always it is best if you are knowledgeable about what your child is reading, you as the parent can make the wisest choice for you child.

We would love to hear what your kids  enjoy reading as well!


  1. I reviewed The series by Brian Litfin as well, but I wouldn't recommend it to teenagers. I felt it was more appropriate for college age and up. It is a good series, though! I'd also add Hope was Here by Joan Bauer for girls. Have you read that one?

  2. My blog doesn't want to associate with my profile. (
