At this stage, avid readers often will find a genre that they enjoy such as historical fiction, fantasy, science fiction, mystery or romance.
They may pride themselves on reading everything by a favorite author or every book in a series.
This can be the age, however, when some children shy away from a quiet activity like reading and pursue social and physical activities instead.
To encourage reading, look for books that focus on the particular interests of the child.
- Special interest books – hobbies, sports, crafts
- Genre books
- Series books
- Lists books, such as Guinness Book of World Records
- Humorous books, joke books
- Cartoon books
