Book recommendations for a soon-to-be 10 year old Soccer Girl
We’re in the home stretch of packing for camp now. About 1,000 swimsuits, t-shirts, shorts and various sports paraphernalia are littering the beds in our guest room, waiting to be crammed into a duffel bag to make their way to sleep away camp.
What was supposed to go in there and isn’t is Girl’s copies of the first two book in the Kingdom Keepers series by Ridley Pearson. That’s because she finished them before she could leave.
When I saw her return from a trip to the bookstore with her Grandfather with these in hand, I knew they were right up her alley. The other series she’s been infatuated with is Sisters Grimm, and this seemed very much the same genre. She’s gone through books 1-7 of Grimm, so there isn’t much left there either.
So I look to you, dear reader, to show me the next steps. What’s another great book for a 10 year old girl to pick up? Could be the same genre, but doesn’t have to be. I’m sending a copy of one of my favorites, Charlotte Sometimes, in a care package to her -similar fantasy themes, but different. But what else should I consider? Any and all recommendations are welcome!
