I eagerly awaited summer vacation as a child because it meant that I could spend the day reading my favorite books. Yes, I was definitely a bookworm as a child and that really hasn’t changed much now that I am an adult. Reading is still one of my favorite pastimes and if I had more hours in my day, I would definitely spend more time reading.

Summer Reading List for Tweens

Yes, there are a lot of new books that have been released since I was a tween but both of my children have always enjoyed what I consider the classics from my youth. In many cases, the writing is more wholesome and the topics more appropriate than some books marketed towards tweens today.  These books were on my summer reading list for tweens when my kids were younger and still work well today.

Many of the books on this summer reading list for tweens can be purchased in Kindle version if your child likes to read books electronically. Or, you can purchase the paperback or hardcover if you prefer. If your tween is younger, editions are available with illustrations in “starter” style instead of the full unabridged edition of some of the classics.

  1. Oh I totally forgot about Pippi Longstocking, a fave of mine. Sometimes it’s hard to find an appropriate book and one you don’t have to preview page by page to see if it’s OK. That’s why I love book reviews.

  2. I was dismayed by the reading list that was sent out by the 7th grade teacher at our school. Hundreds of book from which to choose, but so many topics I found inappropriate. But my sons and I poured through the list and found some that were more in-line with our family’s comfort level. I like your list!

    • I found the same thing, Camilla! I couldn’t believe the books that they were recommending. Definitely NOT what I’d recommend!
