As part of my effort to get parents to keep reading to kids who are perfectly able to read to themselves, I present this list. A lot of these books are funny and will grab the 8-11 year-olds, and they are also books with soul. Note that almost all of them are available in some format of audio book, which makes them wonderful choices for family listening on road trips!
