Children of all ages crave a sense of adventure, and there’s no better way to experience adventure than with a book. Action and adventure books allow kids to explore new worlds, meet new characters, and discover new themes.
Tips for Choosing the Right Books
When it comes to choosing the right books for your kids, it’s essential to look for age-appropriate selections. Some adventure books might be perfect for a 12-year-old but could cause anxiety or confusion for a 6-year-old. Fortunately, we offer action and adventure books for all age groups, so you should be able to find something that’s perfect for your child.
Some books are rated by age, while others are rated by grade or reading level. If your child has trouble reading at his or her grade level, consider buying action and adventure books that are a grade lower. Don’t worry, the more your child reads, the easier it will be for him or her to catch up to peers. In fact, if you buy books that your child loves, he or she could end up developing a passion for reading and may even surpass peers!
How to Foster a Love of Reading
If you treat reading as a chore, your child will probably see it as a chore. But if you adopt the attitude that reading is the most exciting and beloved part of the day, your child will most likely learn to treasure the activity.
Another way you can encourage reading is to sit down and read to or with your kids. Spending time reading together can foster a deep love of reading and can bring your family closer together. If you want your child to work on his or her reading skills, try taking turns reading a page or a chapter each. Letting your kids pick the books they want is another fun way to encourage excitement for reading. Of course, you’ll need to monitor their selections to make sure they are age-appropriate. But the more you involve your child in the book selection process, the more likely he or she is to be excited about reading.
Finally, you can foster a love of reading by starting a book club. Contrary to popular belief, book clubs are not just for adults! Kids can also benefit from book clubs and love talking to their peers about popular action and adventure books. The social nature of book clubs can help kids come out of their shells and can encourage the idea that reading is exciting!
Save Money on Action and Adventure Books for Kids
Once you find a book your child likes, you may want to purchase other books in the series to encourage your child to keep reading. Though book series can be expensive to buy, you can save money by purchasing used. We offer both new and used options to fit any budget. Books make great gifts for birthdays, Christmas, and other holidays.
Back-to-school season is also a great time to update your collection of action and adventure books for kids. After a long summer of fun and outdoor play, kids love getting new books to help stimulate their excitement for reading again.
