As parents we always keep trying to teach and inculcate good habits in our kids, its much easier when they are young. We bring them interactive books, read them aloud along with kids imitating the emotions, read them bed time stories in short, we do everything to make sure, books become their companion. However, as the kids grow up, they have more than one advisor the special impact is of friends, the peer pressure changes their choices than what parents are says, and we often get to her, “my friends don’t do this”, yes, I am talking about the age when kids are about reach adolescence. The kids aged between 10 to 12 are popularly known as Tween agers.

I have one at home, hence know what are the challenges in keeping them glued, they are just like toddlers “na dhang se bade, na hi dhang se bade”, confused as ever.

So, to keep them from getting influenced by surroundings, friends, gadgets and other factors its necessary to share correct information with the either directly or through books. There are few good books that can keep them entertained.

  1. Tom Gates Series

This is a series of 15 books by scholastic, the boy tom himself is in his tweens hence kids relate with him easily. He is late in his homework, gets lecture from mom, his copies are full of doodles, loves watching TV has endless excuses of not doing things. It is a page turner entertaining and hilarious book.


  1. Gerenimo Stiliton series

All the mums must have heard of this series of Gerenimo who always gets into some adventure by chance or because of his cousins. The publisher is Scholastic, most of these books are also available in school libraries. They came in special editions too. The speciality of this book is the words are writing as per their expressions.


  1. Harry potter Series

Who doesn’t know about harry and the magical world, specially after the movies based on it are super hit. However, to increase the imagination and creativity of the child these books are amazing. Specially with tweens, who actually are in the transition phase of life can relate to harry well. The entire series can also be a good gift set for special occasions. J. K. Rowling makes sure kids stay glued till then finish the entire story.


  1. Sudha Murthy

She is known for her work as a teacher and social activist, well acclaimed writer and she has won many national awards too.

Her stories are simple, easy to understand and as most of them are related to people at different strata of society gives children insight and more learning about their surroundings.

Her books like

And many others are real treasures. If your child has not read them yet, go ahead it will only add good.


  1. Ruskin Bond

Ruskin Bond’s always has the most delightful children’s stories, the stories are close to nature, fantasy as well as relationships at the same time.

The stories about adventure or even ghosts are good read for 9+ year old kids, it helps them handling their curiosity about super natural things.

Great Stories for Children

  1. Except for Tom Gates series, my son and I have read the series and books you have mentioned. Gerenimo Stiliton series was his favorite for a long time and Ruskin Bond’s books because he is an alumni of his school. Harry Potter is our all time fav and in fact, I just finished re-reading the whole series one after the other , last month.
