10 Classics that 8-to 12-Year-Olds Still Dig Today


If you have read any of my other articles on Brightly, you will know that I’m a firm believer that kids will want to read more if they have voice and choice in their book selection, rather than us parents pushing “classics” or other highbrow literature that that we might want our kids to read.

Here are 10 timeless classics that kids on Bookopolis.com, a site where young readers share book reviews and recommendations with peers, are raving about these days.
