Carpool Book Club: Kids Edition

Hey, y’all!! It’s time for carpool Book Club!  Woohoo!  Each month, I share the books that are on my nightstand!img_7021

This month, I thought it would be fun to share the books that my kids are currently reading, plus some of our favorites from the past!  I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for some great book recommendations for our family. 🙂

Little House on the Prairie

Presley and I are just starting to read this series before bedtime each night.


Right now, I am reading them aloud, but my hope is that she’ll pick them back up in a few years to read on her own. 🙂

Treasure Island

Meanwhile, Rob and Luke are reading this one together! img_4869

Another one of Luke’s favorites to read on his own is this series: The Hardy Brothers.  img_4871

He loves the mystery element, and I love that they keep him interested!

Babysitter’s Club

Presley is too young for this series, but I can’t wait for her to be into this series!  This was one of my favorites growing up!img_4872

One of Jackson’s favorites growing up was the Magic Tree House series!img_4875


And, if you have a 4th/5th grader, I totally recommend this one!  I read it with Jackson, and it is so good!img_4873

Another one of his favorites during that time period was the Percy Jackson series.  He liked that they were action packed, and I appreciated that they didn’t get too dark!img_4877

Pippa the Pumpkin Fairy

And, finally, Presley is a big fan of this series of books.  They are simple picture books, but they are fun little stories with pretty illustrations.  It’s just a happy little read!img_4876

What are your favorite Children’s books/series?  Share your faves in the comments!  I can’t wait to look through your recommendations!  Happy Thursday, y’all!! XOXO Narci

  1. Ahhh! LIttle House on The Prarie! When the show was cancelled years and years ago….my mom called the network to complain! Yep, the same lady that called the president of OU when I was a freshman to share the fact that she thought it was too cold to have classes since all of the kids had to walk to school. SERIOUSLY. She did that. Left a message on his voicemail. Spoiler alert: he didn’t cancel class. 🙂


  2. Did you read Sweet Valley High growing up? Too old for Presley right now, but that and Babysitter’s Club were my go tos!


  3. I’m on the hunt for a new series for my oldest. I may have to check out the Percy Jackson series. I LOVE that he constantly has a book in his hand but it’s hard for me to keep up with new books for him. Ha!


  4. Try The Babysitters Club Little Sister series! I picked one up in 2nd grade and LOVED IT! Read them all through elementary school until I started reading The Babysitters Club in middle school. It was a great intro to the series. Presley may love it!


  5. I just got rid of my babysitter club books because I had a second boy. But I kept my Little House on the Prairie set I can’t wait to read them with our kids.


  6. You should look into the little sisters series of the babysitters club. They’re for a younger group than the Babysitters Club but still include some of the same characters! I loved those and then couldn’t wait to read the Babysitters Club as my reading advanced! 🙂


  7. We love little house on the prairie! I have been reading American girl collection aloud at bed time and I live the history in each girl’s story that they are learning. Your younger son might enjoy Rush Limbaugh books for history too!


  8. I am a master’s in library student right now, and I recommend the Clementine series for your daughter. I just read it for class and it is cute. I also loved Karen, one of the Babysitter’s Little Sister’s as a child. Those books are for younger kids than the Babysitter’s Club. Also, for class, we read The Read Aloud Handbook by Jim Trelease. It has a great index at the back for great books for any age!


  9. One of my favorite books that my kids and I read together was The One and Only Ivan. Just be prepared to ugly cry in a part or two! My son likes the Hardy Boys: Secret Files series as well as the Battle Bugs series. He also likes the series Bone. You may want to pick up BSC books when you see them at Half Price- they’ve revamped the series into graphic novels.


  10. My middle child loves The Magic Treehouse books, & hello Babysitter’a Club. If that isn’t a trip down memory lane, then I don’t know what is!? I had the books & the dolls. No only if I could find them in my parents’ storage!!


  11. We home school and a company I use has great literature – check out the cores on Sonlight (look at “what’s included” tab for each core) & even look at kindergarten because the read alouds are usually several levels above the grade. We have so many favorites – One Hundred Dresses, Mountain Born, My Father’s Dragon, Gooney Bird, Little Pear, Caddie Woodlawn… You might also enjoy the missionary stories YWAM puts out – my kids love these. Brother Andrew is an absolute favorite of ours (not a YWAM book). My son likes the Brixton Brothers series (a few choice words so be aware). Don’t stop reading aloud to them, though, even if they seem too old! We parents do that too early and books are such a great way to teach lessons and initiate conversations + !!


I love to hear from you! Leave a comment here! :) XO Narci
