Children/Teen Book Recommendations


5 per unit Virtual OK

Looking for books for your own children or a gift for a friend's child you hardly know? I'll recommend 3-5 books they might like. If it's a gift and all you know about a child/teen is their age, that's fine. If you know something more, even better! Do you know the last book they liked? What they like to do? Are they all about the story or facts? Do they appreciate quirky characters and oddball worlds or do they prefer stories that feel like real life? Are they reluctant readers or do they vacuum up every book in their paths? Do they love dogs or horses? Mummies or zombies? Fart jokes? Are they working through a tough time in their lives right now? Do you want books the child can read or books great for reading aloud? I'm best at books for ages 0-13. English language books only.

Training & Qualifications

I'm a former school librarian. I spent 10 years helping kids from preschool to grade 8 find books they love. I've moved on to other things now, but I still love getting great books into the hands and hearts of kids and teens.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi
