I interpreted "7-year-olds" loosely as "children." I think I have no concept of what's appropriate for age ranges. These are mostly just based on personal associations. 😊📚❤️ Thanks for the request @dp10
  1. Harry Potter 1-3 by J.K. Rowling
    The first long books I read on my own when I was 7. After I started I never stopped. But they do get a little darker after book 3.
  2. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
    The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and Voyage of the Dawn Treader are personal favorites.
  3. Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder
  4. Pink and Say, Just Plain Fancy, Thank You Mr. Falker, or anything by Patricia Polacco
    Guaranteed to make moms cry.
  5. A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snickett
    Funny for adults and kids. Taught me the meaning of deja vu.
  6. The Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling
    Classics. Personal favorites include How the Armadillo Came to Be and How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin.
  7. The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
    Talking British animals. Nuff said.
  8. Runny Babbit or anything by Shel Silverstein
    Poetry is important. And funny.
  9. The Redwall series by Brian Jacques
    More talking British animals and great descriptions of feasts.
  10. Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
