55 Best 6th Grade Books to Read for Summer (Ages 11 – 12)

This post may contain affiliate links.

What are the best 6th grade books to read for summer that will keep your 6th grader (age 11-12) reading all summer long? The best way is to make sure they have a lot of excellent book choices — like the middle grade books on this list!

I’ve debated forever and finally chosen a selection of fantastic books in a variety of genres that your soon-to-be 6th graders will love.

The 6th grade books to read below are my top picks. This list of books for kids ages 11 and 12 are all books I’ve personally read and recommend. If you want to read the reviews for each book, visit this post of all the books for 6th graders .

But,…let’s talk about motivation. it’s not always as easy to get 6th grade kids to read simply by having a good book. Kids are distracted by technology and activities and life and on and on.

What else can help motivate 6th grade kids to read?

  • Choice  Let kids pick their own 6th grade books to read for summer reading. Even if it’s a choice within certain guidelines, it’s still a choice. No one likes to be forced to do anything, so the more autonomy kids can have, the better.
  • Accountability If I didn’t require a certain amount of time reading, it wouldn’t happen with my tween. Even though she loves reading. Last summer, my kids tracked minutes reading to earn minutes on screen time. However you plan it, make sure you’re checking in on the reading, so it doesn’t get forgotten.
  • Variety Think outside the traditional book here. Try ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, or blogs.
  • Fun Get a new beanbag pillow just for reading. Read with headlamps in the dark. Whatever your kids like, see if you can pair it with reading.

I have the lists organized by genre. Consider picking one book from each genre to read this summer. That way, your almost 6th grade reader gets exposed to a wide variety of fiction.

I do not see a link for the printable version of the 6th grade list (like the neatly columned 7th and 8th grade lists)….

I’m sorry about that — my forms have stopped working. Here you go:

So helpful! I just wish there was a romance section. Besides that, awesome list!

I’m not a fan of romance as you might have noticed. Do you have any favorites? Maybe I’ll give one a try.

Hi! I am a new 6th grade teacher coming from 3rd grade. I would love a printable version of your 6th grade list if you wouldn’t mind! I found the links for the 5th and 7th grades and I found them so helpful when trying to set up my new classroom. Thank you so much for sharing! Danielle

2021 Middle School Summer Reading Guide

2021 Middle School Summer Reading Guide

Welcome to the 2021 Middle School Summer Reading Guide!

Before you dive in, a few things to note:

  • I’ve included the publication date and recommended age (based on my opinion), but of course, every child is different. If you have a voracious 8-year-old reader, it’s likely, they can handle the books for 9-year-olds. However, if I’ve rated a book as being for ages 10 and up, I’d advise some research before handing it to your 8-year-old. If in doubt, please read my review of the book.
  • There are several graphic novels in this guide (which I’m thrilled about) because I believe that graphic novels are books too. Please let your kids read the kinds of books they enjoy.
  • I’ve read every single book on this list from start to finish and I’d be happy to answer any questions you have about them! Just email me at [email protected] !
  • I HIGHLY recommend the printable PDF of this list as it includes bonus content like readalikes for each recommended book, one extra category, and the number of pages in each book. Plus, it’s just beautiful to look at! Download it by popping your email in the box at the bottom of this page.
  • Creating this guide was a labor of love and I’ve chosen to make it available to everyone at no cost. If you appreciate my work and would love to contribute to the costs of running Reading Middle Grade, you can do so here .

I truly hope you find books to love and cherish on this list. And, if you do, I’d love to hear your favorites!

Summer Readers Books for Elementary, Middle, & High School Levels

Depending on how much time you've spent looking at new books, you might have noticed a shift in children's publishing over the last ten years or so, as our culture has changed. Historic Christian values are not a given in children's books (and especially not by pre-teen books).

If your children like to read, I encourage you to be aware of what's out there. There is much that is broken in this world.

But if you're like me, you don't have much spare time to spend previewing all your children's reading to see if there's inappropriate content.

Also, if you're like me, you love (LOVE!) your children's school books. Sonlight chooses good books!

If you have eager readers, who want more good books … and if you want your children to read, but prefer that the books they read remain generally within the values of historic Christianity, and, if not a Christian bent, at least with a redemptive story line, … I have a solution.

Browse Sonlight's Summer Readers by level today.
