This post contains affiliate links.  We took a break from our regular Sonlight curriculum in March, and you can tell!  We only read two books aloud last month.  However, we had several books in progress that we didn’t finish, so next month, we’ll have a lot of books to share!  Anyway, here are the best (and worst) books for ages 8 to 12 {March 2021}.

The Best Book(s)

We had one book that everyone picked as their favorite in February:

Caddie Woodlawn by Carol Ryrie Brink

The Best (and Worst) Books for Ages 8 to 12 {March 2021}

If you’re a fan of Little House on the Praire books, you’ll likely enjoy Caddie Woodlawn.  In this book, Caddie Woodlawn is growing up in the frontier of Wisconsin along with her brothers and sisters.  The book largely follows Caddie’s adventures and thoughts on situations that affect the whole family.  If you like this book, there is a follow-up, Caddie Woodlawn’s Family.

This book is based on stories from the author’s grandmother’s own life.

Caddie Woodlawn has 275 pages.

Lionclaw by Nancy Springer

The Best (and Worst) Books for Ages 8 to 12 {March 2021}


Cuddle Bug picked Lionclaw, and I have to admit, I really didn’t like it.  However, she loved it.  This is the story of Lionclaw, who is a huge man physically, but a coward.  When bounty hunters take his friend, Rowan Hood, he finally learns what bravery is.

This book has 122 pages.
