April Favorite Books

We are a reading family and we love to share our favorites with you! Each month I try to recommend one book for elementary school readers, one book for junior high or high school readers, and two books that I have loved. I do my best to share why we love them and if there are any content warnings. Here are my April favorite books.

100 Dresses

This book is a super easy read but has a huge impact. A beautiful story for girls or boys and a wonderful family read-aloud or kid book club pick. It’s under 100 pages and teaches so much about kindness and empathy. An easy read for kids 8 and up.


If you have a tween or teen who loves science fiction or fantasy, this should hit the top of your list. Magic and mystery with all kinds of adventure. A good reader could handle it in 4th grade but teens and adults still absolutely enjoy it!

The Kitchen Front

 If you want a squeaky clean, fun book that celebrates female friendships and women coming together, you will love this one! It was just the break I needed between my more intense books!

Good Inside

 I thought this was an excellent parenting book and one I wish would have been around when I had little kids. For sure geared toward parents of younger children, but still a lot of great takeaways for older families too!
