The most popular children's books from 6

We compared the children's books for 6 year olds and selected the most recommendable. Also: The bestsellers for books from 6 years.

With their 6th birthday , children face many big changes . At this age, the transition from kindergarten child to school child usually happens. A new environment, lots of new impressions, new topics and then they also learn to read . Of course, this also has a strong impact on suitable children's books . The texts for reading will be a little longer, the topics maybe a bit more complex and first attempts at reading will also be added. For the latter, the first reading books come into play. Here, the texts are again much shorter and simpler so that the 6-year-olds can practice reading in peace.

However, parents should not force their first attempts to read too hard . If the child prefers to have stories read out loud for the time being, that's perfectly fine. Your own reading experiences should be fun and make you want to read many more hours.

You can find the most important things about children's books for 6-year-olds in our checklist .

Tip : You can find the compact overview of classic children's books for toddlers here.
