As your child enters Year 5, they reach the intermediate stage of Key Stage two learning. At Books2Door, we have specially curated a list of the best children’s books for 9-year-olds as they enter the new school year. Our back-to-school books range features a compiled collection of teachers’ top picks that are perfect for all adventurous readers aged 9-10. Our collection of Key Stage two reading books has been specially hand-picked and recommended by teachers to ensure the perfect books are chosen by our mighty little readers. Featuring some of the most invigorating and adventurous titles, our selection has all the best books that are guaranteed to make your child’s imagination go wild! We’ve got an extensive collection of Key Stage two reading books from a range of best-selling popular authors including C.S. Lewis, Jill Murphy and even Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. There’s guaranteed to be something interesting for 9-year-old bookworms of all reading abilities.

During Year 5, your child will further develop their reading and comprehension skills further to help them become more independent and confident readers. At this stage, their vocabulary and language have become more complex and their focus is on developing these skills to identify language, structure and presentation in texts. In KS2 reading books, they will be able to spot recurring themes, ask questions about the various books they have read and also summarise the information or plot in a book as they have understood it. Reading widely and often increases your child’s vocabulary because they encounter words that they would rarely hear or use in everyday speech. As a result, your child starts to build on and extend their own bank of vocabulary which will help them as they progress through school.

In year 5, children will start to be able to identify and analyse figurative language features and their intended effect on the reader. They will also discuss their understanding of the meaning of words in context and improve on their inference skills by justifying identifications made in the narrative with evidence from the text. During this year, it is crucial to maintain and improve your child’s reading ability as they continue to develop their love for reading by exploring different authors and genres. Implementing guided reading sessions with a teacher or an adult will help to feed your child’s imagination and opens up a treasure-house of wonder and joy for curious young minds.
