Children’s Fiction 8+

The children should have the joy of living in far lands, in other persons, in other times—a delightful double existence; and this joy they will find, for the most part, in their story-books”

— Charlotte Mason (Vol. 1, p. 153)

So it looks like holidays are off the cards this summer for most of us but in Charlotte Mason’s words we can still “have the joy of living in far lands, in other persons, in other times…”  So at a time when we can’t travel and see people so easily, books are a magical way of doing just that both for us adults and our children. So let’s help our children travel this summer and choose books to take them places.  They may even make some friends along the way.

I’ve popped a few stories down below that my children have enjoyed for you to browse, and there are plenty more recommendations on my blog.

Happy browsing!

P.S. All children are wonderfully unique in their interests so it’s worth spending time figuring out what stories they might enjoy.
