13 Must Read Children's Books                                                                                                                         1. Charlotte’s Web

2. Mrs. Piggle Wiggle (Series)

If you are a child, Mrs. Piggle Wiggle is the best person you’ll ever meet. She shows you how to make your chores fun.

3. A Bear Called Paddington (Series)

Paddington is always getting into trouble. And he doesn’t just get into little trouble, he gets into BIG trouble! Every chapter is its own story, and every chapter Paddington gets into trouble. Paddington is always making us laugh. This book is a great read-a- loud. (Paddington’s website is here)

4. Imagination Station (Series)

Mr. Whittaker sends cousins Patrick  and Beth on all sorts of adventures. On their adventures they see real vikings and go to Rome. They go to England and they go to China. There adventures seem to never end!

5. American Girl Books (Series)

Most of these great books are historical fiction, but there are also books about girls of today. (Also fiction). There are stories about girls who lived during the Victorian times, the Great Depression, 1970’s, and many more. These are some of my favorite books!

6. Frog and Toad (Series)

I think that these books are best for ages 3-5, but I think that most 6-9 year olds would enjoy them also. No matter what frog and toad are doing, from acting onstage to playing hide and seek, they are always having fun!

7. Little Bear (Series)

Adorable little bear is always doing something fun such as going to the moon, making birthing soup, or playing in the snow.

8. Magic Tree House (Series)

Siblings Jack and Sally find a tree house full of books. They quickly figure out that if they point at a picture in one of the books from the tree house, and say something like “I want to go there” or “I want to see that” that they can! follow Jack and Annie on their adventures as they watch dinosaur eggs hatch, find pirate treasure, find a secret passage in a castle, and much, much more!

9. Find a Good Guide Book

I like Zoo Guide, Aquarium Guide, Museum Guide, Fun With Nature, and More Fun With Nature.

10. A Little Princess

Young Sarah Crew is rich – intill her dear father loses every penny they own, and dies of surprise, stress, and jungle fever. After her fathers death, Sarah is turned into a scullery maid. Will young Sarah have her happy ever after, or die a mistreated servant?

11. The Pocket Daring Book for Girls

The Pocket Daring Book for Girls is great for a camping trip, bonfire, or even just a game of tag or hopscotch. This book teaches you how to tie different types of knots, make a zip line in your own backyard, fry an egg on the sidewalk, (Though you shouldn’t eat it!) and much more! If you are a girl who wants to have a little bit of daring fun, then this book is for you!

12. Adventures With Lily Lapp

It seems like Amish girl Lily is always getting into mischief. After breaking eggs and letting her little brother get into a lot of flour (whoops!) Lily loses her new shoe in the pond and accidentally sits on gum in her new dress. Will Lily ever be able to stop getting in to so much trouble?

13.The Secret Garden

Orginazation Inspiration for Tween Girls

OrganizationInspirationForTweenGirlsClutter Control is a fabulous and fun American Girl organizational book for girls ages 7 – 14. This book will help you declutter your life, including your backpack, locker, bedroom and more. Plus, it will inspire you to keep those areas clean. Clutter Control helps you decide whether or not something is worth keeping – from a sweatshirt to old papers to the bunny that used to be your favorite stuffed animal. This book also offers fun ideas like how to make that plain wastebasket not so plain and how to organize your school papers. Plus it includes great stickers so you can label your stuff!

I used this book to help me declutter my life, and my friend Alyson (Who also blogs on this site) used this book to help her declutter her things, so I am sure you and your friends can do the same.

P.S. Hurry! I just found out that American Girl discontinued this book, but Amazon has a few used copies left, so get yours now!
