Children's and Middle Grade

Getting your kids to read--a perpetual battle, right?  Your goal, then, is to always find the next excellent ebook in a genre they will love to read. And, what is better than finding ebooks for them that they can read on their electronic devices, such as their phones, Kindles or Nooks?  Authors in our Children's and Middle Grade genre want to help you with your kids, and they want to help you with your budget, too.  They will always offer their ebooks to you for free or discounted.

 

Definition of the "Children's and Middle Grade Genre": Children who are reading these ebooks are still at the stage of their life where they are focused inward.  They are figuring themselves out (a process that shouldn't stop just because we grow older), and so they focus what they want to read on that stage of their lives.  While characters in the Children's and Middle Grade genre grow during the stories, the growth is internal by nature. Ebooks in this genre typically focus on friendship, as children are working out what it makes to be a responsible friend to others, and what they look for in friends themselves.

 

Some bestselling ebooks in the Children's and Middle Grade genre are Katherine Applegate (The One and Only Ivan), R.J. Palacio (Wonder), Jacqueline Woodson (Brown Girl Dreaming), and Sharon Draper (Out of My Mind).

The Escape (The Chronicles of PJ Book 1)

by Mikael Barstow

Every superhero has an origin story … this is PJ’s.

She’s not fast. She isn’t strong. She definitely can’t fly. She has no powers whatsoever. So why does the Director think five-year-old PJ is the perfect weapon for his Pervasive Justice program?

Oy, Dilea, and Rainbow Sherbit want to rescue PJ from the Director and his training school. Their biggest problem (besides the high-tech security, doors that won’t open, and unbreakable windows): they’re stuffed animals. Not your typical trio of saviors, but they’re PJ’s only hope. If they don’t get her out of there before “The Test”, PJ will cease to be a sweet, little girl. She’ll become something else entirely.

American Founding Fathers In Color: Adams, Washington, Jefferson and Others

by Speedy Publishing

In children, education is a marriage between academic structure and sensual inspiration. Playing recruits their natural powers of imagination and reduces boredom or resistance. As an inherent avenue to assimilate the overwhelming amount of data received daily, playing emulates the skills they will need in the future. Indeed, creating examples of rivalry and agreement through active participation and visualization captures the essence of playtime and capitalizes on their interpretation of battle. American history is writ in conflict, survival, and success; and fundamental to this history is the contribution of the Founding Fathers, who forged independence, framed the Constitution, and paved the path to freedom. Analogous to these lessons are those of children. A Color Picture Book on the American Founding Fathers combines the structures of learning while simultaneously creating an interactive scenario of conflict and resolution.

Children's Books: Youngtimer: Adventures in Time

by G. G. Fulton

Twelve-year-old Carly loves her Grampa more than anyone else in the world. So when he dies suddenly, under very bizarre circumstances, she is devastated. A few days later, her Gram tells her that Grampa left her something and hands her a box. There's an envelope taped to the outside of the box with her name on it, and below her name he had written "Only to be opened if something happens to me." Carly ran her hands over the box. What could Grampa have left her that would fit in a box this size?

She turned the envelope over, and gasped. Grampa had written "DO NOT OPEN THE BOX UNTIL YOU HAVE READ THE LETTER!!" Carly dropped the letter as if it was a snake. She was totally shocked by her Grampa's use of all capitalized letters and exclamation points, because it was so unlike his easy-going attitude.

She wasn't sure how long she'd sat there staring into space, but when she did finally blink, she got up and walked out the back door. She turned and stared at Grampa's workshop, imagining him waving her towards him. With tears leaking out of her eyes, and the box tucked under her arm, Carly started for home. She didn't know why Grampa had gone all cloak and dagger on her; she only knew that she would do anything for him, even now.

She hid the box under her bed, and carried the letter with her everywhere she went for weeks. She must have re-read it a hundred times trying to decipher its meaning, and especially the intensity of Grampa's words.

By the time her best friend, Patti, discovered the box and accused Carly of keeping secrets, which they'd promised each other they would never do, Carly was worn out from trying to hold her curiosity at bay. So, it was fairly easy for Patti to convince her that it was the right time to open the box. They took the box to the workshop, and placed it on Grampa's desk.

Carly lifted the lid.

Nothing could have prepared them for what was inside that box.
