It’s “Young Readers Day”!
The second Tuesday of November (this year it falls on the 10th), is Young Readers Day.
Why not celebrate this day and instill a love of reading into your young person/people? Books are a wonderful way to seek out adventures, learn about far off places, and more!
Tim’s Magic Christmas, a chapter book, was written for the middle-grade age group (ages 8-12).
For Tim Frost, Christmas 2011 is a washout. No Santa. No presents. Nothing. His father lost his job when the mill closed and now the family is on the verge of losing their home.
A chance encounter with Nick Kringle, a modern-day Santa Claus, teaches Tim that the greatest gift you can receive is the gift of giving.
Tim’s Magic Christmas is available in paperback from the author, or for the kindle at amazon.com.
Or if you have older young readers, here’s one that will suit anyone from ages 12-102.
Nineteen-year-old Sarah Shand finds herself thrust back into the past. There she struggles to keep her real identity from a society that finds her comments and ideas strange and her speech and actions forward, unlike Victorian women. When Sarah verbally confronts confining social practices, including arranged marriages; powerful enemies commit her to a lunatic asylum. After falling in love with the handsome Laird of Weetshill, Robert Robertson, she must decide whether to find her way back to her own time or to remain in the past with him.
Now isn’t that a great story? I think so, but then I’m biased.

I did not know this was “Young Reader’s Day,” but books make wonderful gifts for the holidays. Imagine a stocking at Christmas filled with books.
I’ve read both of the above and highly recommend them. It’s never too early to start shopping.
Great post, Melanie.
I feel exactly as Beverly does! Love both of the above books for young readers, or any age readers, really. 🙂
I also didn’t know that there was a young readers’ day. But, I am glad there is! I will be sure to share that with my students tomorrow…
Thanks, Beverly. I still love to get books for Christmas!
Aw thanks, Shawn. 🙂
