Over the 10 years I have been blogging I have published many book lists for kids. To make it easy for you to find these book lists all in one place, I have collated them here for you!
Book lists for kids
Some of the titles will state the lists are for boys or girls. Obviously girls and boys can read any books! But the title of each posts mean they are listing books that myself or the guest author of the post have found to be more popular with that gender.

Children’s Book Week Posts
For many years I have written posts to celebrate Children’s Book Week in Australia. These posts contain links to activity sheets, teacher notes etc for books that are shortlisted for CBCA awards. The resources while often aimed at teachers are fantastic for parents too – they explain themes, writing styles and provide example questions you can discuss with the kids as you read the books.
