Whether you’re taking the first steps in building a library for your 8 to 12-year-old children or looking for a gift for a tween or older child, our selection of books will ignite the imagination. From celebrity authored stories to traditional tales and exciting new takes on the classics, our wide range of children’s books for 8 to 12-year-olds will help make sure that you get it right.
Feed your older children's hungry imagination with the delightful Road Dahl and Enid Blyton fantasies that brought reading to life for you, or find new adventures that will open up the world of reading to your pre-teen as they transition from our wonderful collection of books for 4 to 7-year-olds and begin to read on their own, for their own pleasure.
Our range of books and stories for 8 to 12-year-old children
Our range allows you to choose from a selection of latest and classic children’s stories in hardback and paperback format. We also have a wide selection of audiobooks for the older child, which can be listened to as a family and are great for long car journeys. Our range also includes mixed media and novelty children’s books so your choice of children’s book can be as imaginative as the stories they hold.
Within our collection of books for the older child, we have a number of educational and reference books too. Each of these books has been chosen to reflect the educational needs, reading ability and school curriculum of the 8 to 12-year-old age group.
