Fresh Reading Inspiration for 10, 11 and 12 Year Olds

Need some fresh reading inspiration for your 10, 11 or 12 year old? Here are some of the books the kids in our lives have been reading and enjoying recently. Click on the covers to learn more about each book.

Giving your child All Four Stars to read might have additional benefits: this novel about a girl secretly working as a food critic has 2 recipes in the back, and after finishing the book, 11-year-old S. cooked up the Punjabi-inspired carrot pudding for us. Delicious!

We’d love to hear your suggestions for this age group. Please post them in comments below.

    There is a great series I bought overseas called “Recipe for Adventure” by Giada De Laurentis. Hard to find in Australia though. It’s about a set of twins who go on food/travel adventures around the world after their Great Aunt shows up for a visit. The 1st 4 books are set in Naples, Paris, Hong Kong and New Orleans. There is also Rio, Hawaii and a few others. My daughter is impatiently waiting for the next release later in the year.
