My Favorite Read Alouds for Ages 6-10

Over my years of motherhood and homeschooling, I’ve read a lot of books aloud. Like… A LOT. Though, some just stand out as ones both me and the children enjoyed and remember. On Instagram, I was asked to share some of my favorite books I’ve read aloud, and I’m happy to oblige. I’m no bibliophile when it comes to children’s books, but I’ve read enough aloud to have preferences, and I’m sharing some of my favorites today.

In the post, I’m sharing the books that were most enjoyable for 6 to 10 year olds. The next posts will cover favorites for ages 5 and under and book series, so make sure you’re following my blog to be notified, ok? OK!

Charlotte’s Web

This book is probably on everyone’s list of favorite read alouds, and rightly so. It’s an easy read that keeps the attention of everyone listening and tells an unforgettable story of love, loss, and life lessons along the way. It’s a classic for a reason and one to own.

A Wrinkle in Time

I’m going to be honest. We haven’t finished this book yet. In fact, we only got a few chapters before we had to return it to the library. Even so, it hooked us from the start, so much so, I bought it and plan on buying the series. It’s so well-written, a pleasure to read aloud, and another one to have on your bookshelf forever.


We read this wonderful book a couple of summers ago, and it was an instant favorite. Auggie’s story offers so many lessons on acceptance, unconditional love, true friendship, and overcoming challenges.

I think it’s a great story for children in this age group to hear particularly because of teaches about tolerance, kindness and how they too can face the challenges on being different head on.

The Toothpaste Millionaire

This book was an unexpected hit in our homeschool and ended up being a great introduction into goal-setting, entrepreneurship, and how age is just a number when it comes to living your dreams.

It’s written for older children (ages 10-12,) but younger children can enjoy it, too.

Mr. Popper’s Penguins

A fantastical, silly story, Mr. Popper’s Penguin was a pleasure to read aloud.

Mr. Popper’s love and care for his penguins made us root for him and his family and want our own penguins! 🙂 It was such a cute story that we bought the movie, too.

The Family Under the Bridge

This heartwarming story shows how love can warm up a cold heart, even one of an old man who thinks he doesn’t need it. Kindness, gratitude, and standing in the shoes of others are a few of the lessons this book teaches. Also, the illustrations are lovely and only adds to its appeal.

Mercy Watson Boxed Set: Adventures of a Porcine Wonder

After borrowing all of the books from the library, this set was the first one I bought for my youngest son because he LOVED Mercy. He thought her antics were so funny, cute, and silly. He asked to read all of them over and over for weeks. He still needs them from time to time, and I’ll be reading them to my daughter next.

We’ve enjoyed each of these books on this list, and I hope you and your children enjoy them as well. Happy reading!
