I love it when friends ask me for book recommendations for their kids! My latest request comes from a local friend whose children are ages 8, 10, and 12.
When I asked her what their interests were she said, “They’ve all recently read the Harry Potter and Percy Jackson series. They’re into reading a lot of the same stuff right now. Fantasy-type stuff with kids as main characters.”
Here are some fun recommendations (in no particular order) for fantasy adventure series for the middle school age range (ages 8-12). I have not read every one of these books but I’ve read at least the first book in each series.
As usual, the links will take you to Amazon and I might earn a small commission if you end up ordering. I’ve indicated which titles are available as part of the FreeTime Unlimited or Kindle Unlimited subscriptions.
The Mysterious Benedict Society series
