The best children’s reading books for 7-10 year olds
There are always one or two children’s books on the boys’ wish lists. We are lucky in our house that everyone loves reading. (Children’s) books are always fun to give, then, but also to get.
Here at home the boys like to read and read a lot. These are really not just children’s books. They also like to read Donald Duckies or other comic books. That’s why there are always a few children’s books and Donald Duck paperbacks on the wish lists. Recently I received a couple of press releases with books that are also fun to give at the holidays.
