PFL’s Reading List: Ages 7-9 years

Passion For Language firmly believes in the importance of reading as a vital aspect of a child’s development. Selecting the right book for your child, will support children in acquiring new vocabulary and language skills, it also encourages to improve understanding and imagination.

 

We have organised these books according to age but these categories are a guideline only. Children read at different levels and the important thing is not that they are necessarily reading “age appropriate” books but that they are reading in the first place. If you are reading to your child, you may want to go up to the next age bracket for your book choice, whereas if the child is just beginning to read alone you may want to look to the age group below. As far as possible we recommend that you discuss the books with your children and encourage them to express their opinions and thoughts.
