Magic Tree House by Mary Pope Osborne

(book one of the series is Dinosaurs Before Dark)

This series is popular with kids everywhere, and it’s easy to see why! Two siblings, Jack and Annie, discover a treehouse that is – you guessed it – magic. In each book of the series, the treehouse transports them to a different moment in history so the kids get to experience history firsthand.

Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder

(the first in the series is Little House in the Big Woods)

A family strives to build a life together on the prairie. In one particular book in the series, The Long Winter, the Ingalls family experiences a time very similar to quarantine. Maybe we can all relate to that book a little more now!


The Giver by Lois Lowry

A story about a 12-year-old boy who discovers the secrets of the community where he lives.

Nancy Drew series by Carolyn Keene

(book one is The Secret of the Old Clock)

This is a classic mystery series about a teenage detective, and the many mysteries she solves. If you’ve been looking for the kind of heroine your daughter can look up to, Nancy Drew is a good fit.


Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

A story about four sisters that, although set in the 1800s, is as relevant today as it was then. After you finish reading this one, make sure you watch the movie!
