A-Z of book recommendations: kids’ books!

I was sitting the other day thinking about ways in which my kids and I could share our love of books… and someone said, “Miss, I bet you can’t do an A-Z of book recommendations!” so here I am, taking on his challenge. I’ve set them a 2 week challenge to complete it, but here I am trying to do it all in one go.

If I manage this, I’ll try and do a YA version and a picture book version, but please please don’t hold me to that haha! I’m not going to include graphic novels in this – I’ll do a separate one for those if I succeed too!

Here goes…

BEFORE I START… I would just like to say the amount of books that begin ‘The…’ made this really hard for me (so honestly… I might’ve cheated, haha).


A – Arctic Star by Tom Palmer

B – Bad Nana by Sophy Henn

C – Crater Lake by Jennifer Killick

D – Dragon Mountain by Katie and Kevin Tsang

E – Escape from Aurora (Frostheart) by Jamie Littler

F – Front Desk by Kelly Yang

G – Ghost by Jason Reynolds

H – High Rise Mystery by Sharna Jackson

I – I Cosmo by Carlie Sorosiak

J – Jungledrop by Abi Elphinstone

K – (A) Kind of Spark by Elle McNicoll

L – Lost Tide Warriors by Catherine Doyle

M – Midnight Guardians by Ross Montgomery

N – Nowhere Emporium by Ross Mackenzie

O – Orphans of the Tide by Struan Murray

P – Pages and Co by Anna James

Q – Queen’s Fool by Ally Sherrick

R – Rainbow Grey by Laura Ellen Anderson

S – Show Us Who You Are by Elle McNicoll

T – The Strangeworlds Travel Agency by L.D. Lapinski

V – Vanishing Trick by Jenni Spangler

Are any of you brave enough to take on the A-Z of recommendations?

Obviously this isn’t an exhaustive list of books I’d recommend, they’re just a range of recommendations. Ask me to do this list again and trust me 80% of it would be different haha!

If you’d like a graphic novel, picture book or YA version, let me know… I quite enjoyed challenging myself to do this!
