Books as Christmas Stocking Fillers

Santa has always been very encouraging of reading for my boys. They got board books as babies, picture books as toddlers, and now he fills their Christmas stockings with a variety of novels, fact books, joke books, and sometimes even school books! I am always on the look out for books my kids will enjoy, and I thought I would share some of their favourites with you.

I have asked my boys to give you a list of the top five or six books they would recommend for a child of similar age. They all recommend  Percy Jackson (5 books in Series), Artemis Fowl (8 Book in Series), and of course, Harry Potter.
