Middle-grade books (also called chapter books) are typically written for children ages 8 – 12. This is the magical age when kids are hungry for great stories to feed their fantastic imaginations. Middle-grade books incorporate a wide variety of genres, including historical fiction, mystery, fantasy, paranormal, sci-fi and much more. Their commonality is that they usually feature young protagonists and are written at an appropriate maturity level for their readers.
Middle-grade books make a great present for your pre-teen child or for nieces and nephews. Some of the best middle-grade books can also appeal to adults, so you and your child may just have to share. At Compulsion Reads, we are proud of our growing library of endorsed middle-grade fiction. Check out our newest additions today.
