Books for 3rd graders and beyond are obviously the best gift. The two main things to keep in mind when picking books for 3rd graders are 1) the wide range of reading capabilities for 3rd graders, 2) that reading needs to be fun for kids who are developing their relationship with reading. In 3rd grade, 7- and 8-year-olds might read a couple of grade levels in either direction, meaning kids could be reading anywhere from what’s considered average for a 1st grader to what’s average for a 5th grader. Reading takes practice, so helping kids find books that will give them confidence and help them practice is key.
When buying for kids, books are even better because you can pick out something that will directly help them build skills they need for school. One of the biggest things for kids at this age is getting books they’ll enjoy reading.
