Teen and Kid Favorites, Part 3


Welcome to part 3, the final installment, in this year’s series of Teen and Kid Favorites, just in time for the holiday shopping season. Here are links to part 1 and part 2 in case you missed them. Thank you to all the kids and teens who participated in this year’s survey.

The question: What is your favorite book this year and why?

Laurel, age 4 (almost 5):

The Duckling Gets a Cookie!? by Mo Willems


Why is this your favorite book this year? Because Mommy and I love Mo Willems!

Riley, age 17:

Into The Wild by Jon Krakauer


Why is this your favorite book this year?  It reflects on the difficulties of getting by in life with as few material possessions as possible, and shows a struggle of a man trying to find his place in society.

Ava, age 6:

Mr. Putter and Tabby books by Cynthia Rylant (illus. by Arthur Howard)


Why is this your favorite book this year?  I love Mr. Putter & Tabby. Especially Mr. Putter & Tabby Paint the Porch. It is really funny. You laugh a lot. Tabby and Zeke the dog are always getting into trouble.

Pearl, age 13:

Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan


Why is this your favorite book of the year? Because I love anything to do with Greek mythology.

Zachary, age 7-1/2:

Bad Kitty for President by Nick Bruel


Why is this your favorite book this year? I liked that it was between Bad Kitty and Big Kitty for President and Strange Kitty was the judge. Then, it was hilarious because Strange Kitty was the judge and he won!

Thanks again to all the participants! It’s fun to see what kids and teens are reading! Be sure to check out the comments to see what everyone else picked as favorites. Happy reading!

Stay tuned for some of my past Christmas picks for my daughter, and for a Spotlight interview and give-away!

  1. Love this series — always interesting to read the reasons why, too. Happy to see Mr. Putty and Tabby mentioned today :). Looking forward to your past picks for C. I’m on the lookout for tween/early YA books —

  2. Those Mo Willems books are so cute! I liked the Into the Wild film and can believe it’s an awesome book too. Bad Kitty for President also sounds like a riot 🙂
