1. Sheila Turnage’s novel: Three Times Lucky
One of my all-time favorite novels! You’ll fall in love with the vivacious Miss Moses LeBeau, a sixth grader who has made a surprising connection with the enigmatic Colonel and the wonderful café owner, Miss Lana. Mo will make you laugh, weep, and hope that she will be able to preserve her beloved (albeit obviously odd) family with the help of her closest buddy, Dale Earnhardt Johnson III. It’s amusing. It’s comforting. Girls and boys will both fall in love with it.
2. Chris Grabenstein’s Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library
Have you ever considered spending the night at a library? Even if you haven’t, Kyle Keely and a group of eleven other youngsters have the opportunity to spend the night at Mr. Lemoncello’s incredible game-focused library. (Trust me, this library is the coolest, finest, and most amazing one ever.) Will Kyle and his buddies be able to escape the library if the doors don’t open at the end of the night? The whole family will participate in the activities and wait at the edge of their seats in anticipation, and you will unintentionally learn a tremendous lot about how libraries operate. (A different trilogy!)
3. Ann M. Martin’s Missy Piggle-Wiggle and the Whatever Cure

This book, which is composed of a collection of short tales that come together to form a humorous and endearing novel, will make your youngsters wish they lived in an upside-down home in your community.

You’ll fall in love with Missy Piggle-Wiggle, and she could inspire you to break the terrible behaviors you notice in your own children!
4. Suzanne Collins’s Gregor the Overlander

Prepare yourself for enormous bats, a perilous journey, and a mission to reunite a family. Every member of your family will be entranced by this book. Indeed, even Dad!
The Underland Chronicles, written by Suzanne Collins, the author of The Hunger Games trilogy, are geared for younger readers and do not have the same level of violent content.
5. C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
This timeless piece has to be on the list. Read it again if any adults in your household who previously read it in school. You’ll learn things that you most likely did not learn in fourth grade. You are in for a treat if no one in your family has ever read it before! Four siblings are transferred to a quaint rural home during World War II, where they discover a wardrobe. Who really cares?

Begin your search for the wardrobe that will transport you to the realm of Narnia, which is home to fauns, ice castles, prophesies, and a lion who has the power to transform even the most avaricious heart.
6. Jason Segel’s “Nightmares!”
Jason Segel was Marshall in How I Met Your Mother and Gary in The Muppets, among other roles. Shapero noted this book (which was created for children, I swear) delves further into the realm of nightmares than any other book ever has. To order to preserve their village, Charlie and his buddies must physically confront their biggest fears. Can they manage it? Will Charlie let down the ones he cares about the most? It’s a family narrative and a courage story that will stick with you long after you’ve read the final page. (Woohoo! Another series!)
7. Jeanne DuPrau’s The City of Ember
Lina and Doon see that their neighborhood needs a fresh start as the number of lights, culinary options, and crimes increase. Can the two youngsters, however, escape the city of Ember? And if they succeed, will they be able to persuade everyone that maybe the world extends outside their subterranean town?
Both adults and children will find the idea fascinating. You’ll like this science, politics, and friendship-themed adventure! (Hmm…a new series? Of course!) Jeanne Birdsall’s book The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy
The Penderwicks is a humorous, realistic tale that examines the lives of four sisters. Even the most heartless person will be won over by the characters’ personality. A family’s summer activities are described in this light book, including new connections, amusing mistakes, and priceless memories.
This is a less strenuous, more relaxed choice. You’ll like the Penderwicks’ adventures’ easy flow, but don’t worry; you won’t become bored. Your whole family will like the intriguing characters that Jeanne Birdsall crafts. (Excellent news—you got it—this is the first book of! a sequence!)
8. Lisa Lewis Tyre’s Last in a Long Line of Rebels
