My 7-year-old has become quite the strong reader as of late. This has been great but it also means he is devouring books quicker than I can get him new ones to read. I’m pretty sure the librarian wants to hide when he walks up to the desk looking for more recommendations. I figured you might also have a book lover at home and you might appreciate these books for 7 year olds! All of them have been suggested by my son. I hope you find a few your child can enjoy.
Books for 7 Year Olds
In my son’s words, “Captain Awesome should be read by all kids because it is AWESOME!” He loves these books and they are repeat offenders in our library bag each week.
With a name like Captain Underpants it was sure to grab his interest. This book series is pure silliness and my son just adores it. He loves all the bathroom humor, action hero, total silliness in this series.
This book series and the movies that go with it are my son’s absolute favorite. He will read this about a thousand times if I let him. He just loves the silliness of it and the fact that most of it is just gross. He giggles the whole way through each book and constantly runs to me to tell me the new shenanigans the characters are up to.
My son says these are very interesting. He said, “If you are a kid who likes series with superheroes and people that turn into animals, this would be a good book. He has a girl sidekick and it’s just a great book.” From what he tells me this book is packed with a lot of action kids are sure to enjoy.
This book series went so fast with C that I barely had a chance to hear about it. He devoured the whole series in a matter of days as he sat giggling about all the different stories.
This series is one that he comes and goes with. He seems to like to pick it up for a bit and then move on to something else. However, he always seems to come back to Aslan and the wardrobe at some point. I love that because this is one of my favorites.
The Imagination Station books are similar to Magic Treehouse books except they take a faith-based approach. The characters travel through all of time and see historical events through a faith-based lens. My son didn’t really love Magic Treehouse but he devoured these.
This book series had my little guy laughing too hard. He loved the adventure and finished these books so fast we almost made a bonus library trip. I highly recommend them if you have a kid that loves a bit of adventure.
Do you have a child that loves a good mystery? Hardy Boys is one of my son’s favorite series. He was gifted a few older ones from a grandma and he was hooked. I highly recommend them.
This series was one of my absolute favorites as a child so I love that he is continuing the adventure. My son loves the creativity it takes the children to survive on their own. Your children may have different reasons for loving it.
