Holiday Book Gift Ideas for Kids Ages 6 to 8

Nov 28, 2023

Your child is now an independent reader, which makes this a wonderful time to get them wrapped up in the giddiness of receiving great books for the holidays! Books with fascinating topics (like those in the Who Would Win 10-Book Boxed Set) and books about whimsical adventures (like the Dragon Masters Box Set) are popular picks for kids in this age range.

Readers will unwrap magic with captivating activity books to go alongside their favorite series. For instance, pair the ready-to-gift Dog Man: The Epic Collection (Books #1-3) with the epic Dog Man with Love: The Official Coloring Book

The books on this list are the top titles Scholastic Editors have chosen for ages 6 to 8. Here you'll find graphic novels, chapter books, and series that range from nonfiction to fantasy and beyond — there's something for everyone's various interests and for every kind of reader, voracious and striving alike.
