Fantasy books for kids: how is it going to help your children?
One of the most sought habits to inculcate in our youngest is the habit of reading. How could it be another way? You came looking for some reading for kids, and that is a great job, since reading has a lot of benefits, such as:
- Stress reduction and mental stimulation.
- Vocabulary building.
- Better analytical thinking skills and concentration.
But of course, we usually don’t read because of these benefits but because it is fun! Reading evokes so many feelings, you can feel sad, happy, angry…
As a result of the benefits previously mentioned, reading helps to improve study, as well as speeding it up and reading comprehension. This is why reading has great importance in the future of the youngest. In this sense, there are many schools and institutes that, as part of their subjects, oblige the reading of different books to the youngest as a form of homework.
The books they must read as schoolwork are sometimes those of the most classic literature. And, in some cases, boring. This is why a lot of kids are reluctant to read, they had a bad experience, they didn’t have fun reading! for those parents who want their children to love reading since they are kids, you might like to check this article where I mention reading websites for children that will teach and motivate them while they have fun.

In 2002 this saga won The Gold award in Nestlé Children’s Book Prize (set of annual awards for British children’s books that ran from 1985 to 2007 according to Wikipedia) in nine to eleven years old category. So yes, this book is a great way to start loving books again. This series consists of four novels, the series taking the name from its first novel.

The Hobbit: a fantasy book for kids that everyone should read
The Lord of the Rings is a reference within fantastic literature. Set in the same world and with a much simpler understanding, we have its prequel, The Hobbit. A shorter story ideal for reinforcing the idea of friendship and companionship. In this, a fellowship of Dwarves and a Hobbit will demonstrate that together they can perform the greatest of feats, such as stealing a treasure from a terrible dragon that had terrified people for years.
This story is quite simple to read and can serve as a perfect introduction to somewhat more complicated novels, such as the aforementioned The Lord of the Rings (which, if you loved it, check this books like The Lord of The Rings).
When it comes to fantasy books for kids The Hobbit is a must, however, The Lord of the Rings gets way more complicated, so leave that one for when they get older.
The Chronicles of Narnia
Once again in a magical world, which in this case the protagonists’ access through the inside of a wardrobe. We find ourselves before a series of short novels in which the adventures that this group of young people carries out in Narnia are told. Narnia is a magical region that has its own problems, beyond those of the everyday world, in which an evil witch tries to put an end to the prosperity of the region and achieve a reign of tyranny and terror. Magic, adventures and a lot of action, in a fascinating world where the young reader will be able to learn and know a lot of concepts about the behavior of other species since the animals also have an important role in this story.
The Legend of Drizzt
This is a really long series (you can see the Drizzt reading order) which narrate the adventures of Drizzt Do’Urden, a drow (or dark elf) and his many friends. It is a series of novels with a quite interesting background that makes us reason from a very young age. The dark elves are born in evil and live by and for it, yet the protagonist of the story denies his race and decides to discover the outside world since he was not born to be evil. However, due to the color of his skin and the terrible stories that accompany those of his race, he lives continuously prejudiced by the rest of the inhabitants due to his origins and for racial prejudices.
By the way, I wrote about racism in literature before, check this post if you are interested in this topic. The novels that narrate the life of the elf teach us that we don’t have to prejudge anyone and that in order to get to know people, the best thing to do is to treat them and discover the good things that each one of them can give us.
This series is more than known. If you haven’t read them these books are a fantastic and magic way to introduce you into reading again. Harry Potter, the boy who defeated You-Know-Who being only a baby and his adventures in Hogwarts school of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The Harry Potter series is set in our world, making magical creatures and people coexisting in the mundane world with most of the people unaware of it. Here you have all the Harry Potter books in order. There is no doubt that this series is one of the best fantasy books for kids.
If you already read Harry Potter, you might like these other books like Harry Potter by the way.
