Bookworm for Kids


Bookworm For Kids is a resource for teachers, parents, grandparents, and all others interested in encouraging children to love reading. All listed books are highly recommended.

The Newbery and Caldecott winners for 2017 have been announced!

The New Books page lists recommended new releases for all ages.

The Books by Ages pages divide recommended books into four sections: Birth–4, Ages 4–8, Ages 8–12, and Ages 12–up. These age breakdowns are rough at best—read the book description to determine if the book is a good fit. Some books appear on more than one page because of the age overlap.

The Theme, Genre, and Subject pages divide the books into categories, hopefully helping you find just the right book for children with specific interests.

The For Teachers section features books to accompany the Marilyn Burns Math and Literature lessons.
