30 stunning books for 6-7 year olds (Year 2) – A Reading List
Here is our absolutely stunning & carefully curated recommended list of books for 6 to 7 year old children (KS1 Year 2 or Grade 1). The list is created to help teachers and parents discover books that are age appropriate and not only exquisite in their text but are also so visually stunning that you would want to come back to them time and again. We hope that adults will enjoy reading and re-reading these with their students, children and grandchildren. We cover a wide selection of old and new mostly fiction but also some breathtaking non fiction books covering a range of topics featuring diversity (BAME), kindness, inclusion, adventure, fantasy, science, art, animals and more. You may click on the book images that interest you to know more about them. If you wish to create a personalized reading list specific to your child as per their age and ability, sign up your child on the Browzly app available on Apple and Google play stores. The app generates individualized lists of books that are age appropriate and also specific to each child’s estimated ability to handle text complexity. Read more about this at the end of the blog, and don’t forget to sign up for the Browzly 2020 Reading Challenge.
The recommendations above feature an exciting array of writers and illustrators to choose from. Coming back to the objective of creating the recommended reading range on the Browzly app, we have designed this range so that the recommendations made to every student are at an appropriate age and challenge level for them, whether they are developing or advanced readers. The recommended reading zone is dynamic and automatically adjusts as the child – adds the books they’ve read, marks their perceived difficulty level and takes book quizzes that pop up automatically when available. This may take out the the need to constantly test the child to establish their reading levels and helps teachers track and support their reading progress very easily. Many times, reluctance to read is linked to the books being too difficult for a child or not being interesting for their age therefore we recommend that children select books that are easy to medium difficulty level as perceived by the child, for their independent reading. We also recognise that determination of reading levels can never be an exact science, that’s why we promote independent selection of books so that it is children’s interests and fascination with books and cover art, that allows them to choose what they want to read and book selection is an exciting process.
