As the quality of children’s literature evolves faster than ever, it has become increasingly difficult for parents to find the best children’s books for every age and stage.
As your kids grow older, it will only get more difficult for you to control the literature they consume, especially teenagers. In that, you will not always be familiar with the best books available for your kid’s age group. You will soon realise that you have several factors to consider when choosing reading material. Precisely why, it is essential to get them started young on quality literature and help them pick the best books to read at every age.
Whilst several factors will influence the selection of the best children’s books for your kids at every age and stage of development—we at Books2Door believe you can start by asking some standard questions, like ‘Is this book age-appropriate for my kid?’
There are few moments in life as unique as a baby’s first introduction to books, so you must make a mindful decision. Thankfully, today there are several options at your disposal as a parent, from board books, picture books and pop-up books purpose-built for the little hands and curious minds. These touch-and-feel books, audiobooks, push, pull and slide books are an excellent way to encourage infants and babies to engage with books. These books are carefully designed and written to help babies work on their sensory development, hand-to-eye coordination, and fine motor skills. Whilst picture books work help open a world of storytelling and imagination for toddlers.
From beloved classics to the latest influx of new-age children’s literature, several books will inspire a love of reading and literature in children. As parents, all you need is to expose your kids to the books appropriate for their age group.
Why does the book need to be age appropriate?
A book should appeal to the age group and be able to hold your kid’s interest. It needs the correct number of pages, have the right vocabulary, and the content should be at the level your child is intellectually ready for.
If a book fails to achieve any of these factors, your child will lose interest and put the book down. If this happens more than once, your kid will assume they don’t like reading. It is essential, therefore, that you find a book that is age-appropriate for your child.
So how do you shortlist age-appropriate books for your kid? Here are some things that you might want to consider…
From toddlers to teens and every age in between, here is how you can pick an age-appropriate book from the classics, bestselling books, and new-age children’s literature for your child.
Read Books2Door’s book synopsis.
We at Books2Door not only list information about books under the Books By Age tab for different age groups but also present a detailed synopsis of each book under each tab. Our website navigation is designed to help you make reading choices based on all your needs and preferences.
You can also search specific book titles by simply using the search box. If you don’t have a particular book in mind, we also have detailed descriptions and reviews that will help you make an informed decision about which book you would like for your child or yourself.
We at Books2Door are a big part of the book lover’s community, and Goodreads is another platform for genuine literature lovers.
Underneath every book description on Book2Door, you will find the Goodreads reviews grid. You can scroll through all the reviews, read up on what other parents thought of the said book, and make age-appropriate book choices for your kid.
Read the book yourself
Whilst we have left no stone unturned to make the decision-making process simpler for you, if you are still unsure about what qualifies as age-appropriate reading material for your kids, you can read the book yourself and decide if it is appropriate for your kid. Whilst we at Books2Door can suggest books for your child’s age group, we understand that you are the expert in what is suitable for your child.
Cater to your child’s calibre and learning speed
If your child reads books beyond their age group fluently, that’s great! You can encourage your child to read books with a higher vocabulary and complex writing. You can still censor their reading material for age-appropriate content regarding what information you expose them to.
The reverse can be done if your child struggles with reading and needs to start with more straightforward books appropriate for a younger age group. Sometimes a child simply needs to build confidence to enjoy reading. So let them read below their level to start enjoying books.
We’re here to help you find the best books suited to every age and every stage. You’ll discover an impressive range of books to inspire every eager reader regardless of age or interests. From toddlers to teens and every step in between, why not start by checking out some of our bestsellers or fiction and nonfiction titles with recommendations for each age group. At Books2Door, we like to make it easy for you to browse the most popular reads you can buy, knowing you’ve made the right choice. Whether it’s showing you the most loved kids’ books, picture books, classic collections or bestselling sets, here you’ll find unmissable prices across everyday books.
There’s nothing quite like curling up with a good book and introducing this from a young age in a bedtime routine or for even 10-15 minutes a day will do wonders for their development skills. If you’re keen to build up your collection of books at home with various topics and interests - we’re here to nurture that love for books linked directly to childhood. Often books can have a sense of escapism packed with fun and adventure. Still, as children’s interests grow or their reading skills develop, they’ll be on the hunt for new books to fill their curious minds.
Our 0-5 collection is perfect for babies, toddlers, and kids just starting out on their reading journey. In it, you’ll find picture books, touch and feel, pop-up and lift the flap books, and all manner of great bedtime stories. From phonics to baby gift sets, find the perfect books for your child today.
If your child is between 5-7, shop our extensive range of books perfect for them. From Biff, Chip & Kipper to Mr Men and Little Miss, it’s an unbeatable selection of classic children’s books and new favourites. This is a pivotal time to make reading a habit for your children, so it’s essential that you’ve got books you know they’re going to love.
When your child reaches the age of 7-9, the whole world of reading is opened up to them. Whether it’s The Chronicles of Narnia or Diary of a Wimpy Kid, you’ll find the perfect box set to get your kids engrossed in the world of stories. Kids will be developing their own tastes by now, so whether they’re into imaginative fiction, books that are more down-to-earth, or just a good laugh, you can be sure that we’ve got the right box set for them.
Independent readers aged 9-14 can be voracious consumers of books. Luckily, we’ve got the box sets you need to keep up with them. Whether it’s Harry Potter, Alex Rider, Jacqueline Wilson or Rick Riordan, you can be sure to find a set to suit your child’s tastes.
