25 Great Books for Middle Schoolers

With summer here, and summer reading programs in full swing, it is a great time to make a book list for your middle school child.

These book series are great for those kids who are in the middle age range (10-12). Use discretion when choosing books for your child, each family will have different values and standards for their child’s literature choices.

Randi’s Curriculum Choices

There are way too many curriculum choices.  Some are excellent and a lot are not!  In creating this list, I didn’t want to add to all the noise and burden parents to just buy more stuff to put on their shelves. I wanted to keep my recommendations to only the books that are very, very special.  There are many more books, but most people don’t have very much time and their children don’t either.  So read and use the really good books first and then if time permits, read the rest.

Most homeschooling parents I know are book lovers!  We can’t imagine not reading and long for our children to enjoy the same.  Truthfully, in 13 years of home education, I don’t think any ‘lesson’ has brought me greater joy than watching the light-bulbs come on with reading.  One of my children picked it up so easily I couldn’t believe there were any illiterate folks in the world.  The other child struggled.  Years down the road, the one who struggled is a voracious reader and the other will read if there is no other option.  Interestingly, the child who learned to read the words found comprehension far more complicated.  This is just a brief little piece to encourage those of you in the throes of reading instruction.
