Fortunately, today the answer to this question can be quite voluminous and multifaceted. Naturally, when choosing books and authors, it is best to focus on the preferences and hobbies of the reader or reader.
Some people like stories about adventure and travel. Others are detective stories or science fiction. Still others recognize nothing but colorful science pop and comics. And this is absolutely normal.
But there are certain important points to consider in most cases. For example, for the age of 7-9 years (if we are talking about fiction), the so-called chapterbooks, that is, books of 64-128 pages, divided into chapters and decorated with a sufficient number of illustrations.
Another significant point is that at the moment there is no separate literature for boys and girls. Such absurdities and stereotypes have long become obsolete. Now the main focus is on the age and interests of children. And this is also very cool and promising.
Of the brightest and most qualitatively designed books suitable for independent reading, I can safely recommend the following.
- «Isadora Moon. Adventures of a very unusual girl, Harriet Muncaster.
- «Vico. Adventures of an amazing boy", Oliver Pouch.
