New Research: What Kids Want In Books

Merry Christmas! Books are a great addition to the Christmas list.
To make shopping even easier Scholastic recently released new data titled `What Kids Want in Books` - a "sneak preview" from a new national survey of children ages six - 17 and their parents. Below you will find the `preview` of the report from the fifth edition of the Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report*. The full report is due out January 2015. You will also find handy links for parents and teachers.

That is an interesting list. We have no children to buy for right now but I like that they said they want to laugh!

Hi, Debby!

Our guys are grown now and they don't have children, yet.
However, reading was big on the agenda while growing up. So much so that our youngest is majoring in Journalism.
I also like the fact children want books that make them laugh. One of our guys favorite series was Mrs. Piggle Wiggle.

I think my 7 year old grandson would agree with the laughter, he likes the Rush Limbaugh books about history

Hi, Linda Kay,

Your grandson may enjoy the Dover History Coloring Book `Story of the American Revolution`, carried by Scholastic. I believe even an adult would enjoy coloring in this informative book.
