This month we dug out a Christmas book that we didn’t get to finish last year and also read a fun book.  Two of the books were from our homeschool curriculum including part of our religion curriculum (YWAM Christian Heroes) and our history curriculum, Sonlight Level D.  Here are the best (and worst) books for ages 8 to 12 {November 2020}.

The Best (and Worst) Books for Ages 8 to 12 {November 2020}

Books We Read

This month we finished four books.

The Best Books

The girls had one book that they most enjoyed this month:

Ungifted by Gordan Korman

The Best (and Worst) Books for Ages 8 to 12 {November 2020}

In Ungifted, Donovan Curtis is a prankster middle school student who pulls off the biggest prank of the school’s history.  This prank goes further than Donovan expected, and he expects the principal will punish him severely.  Instead, there’s an administrative mix up, and Donovan ends up getting sent to the Academy of Scholastic Distinction.  However, it isn’t long before the staff and students at the gifted school realize that Donovan isn’t gifted in the traditional sense.  Yet, if Donovan is found out, he’ll face the wrath of his former principal.  Can Donovan keep up the ruse?

This book has 280 pages.

The Best (and Worst) Books for Ages 8 to 12 {November 2020}

Toliver’s Secret by Esther Wood Brady

Toliver’s Secret was my favorite book this month.  (The girls enjoyed it, but Ungifted definitely was their favorite.)  In New England during the Revolutionary War, Ellen Toliver is a bullied girl unable to stand up for herself.  When her grandfather, whose involved in spy work for the new nation, hurts his leg and isn’t able to deliver an important message to General Washington, he asks Ellen to do it.  What follows is Ellen’s adventure to get a message to the next person in the spy chain so the message gets to General Washington.  The trip doesn’t go as planned and Ellen has some close calls, but she also learns she’s more capable than she thought.

This book has 166 pages.

Rachel Saint: A Star in the Jungle by Janet & Geoff Benge

Rachel Saint: A Star in the Jungle by Janet & Geoff Benge

Rachel Saint: A Star in the Jungle is the perfect complement to the earlier book we read about her brother, Nate Saint: On a Wing and a Prayer.  (Click the links to read my reviews about both books.)

This book has 207 pages.

The Magic Treehouse: Christmas in Camelot by Mary Pope Osborne

The Best (and Worst) Books for Ages 8 to 12 {November 2020}

We bought this beautiful, deluxe copy of The Magic Treehouse: Christmas in Camelot last year, but we didn’t finish reading it.  We really should have because it seems more appropriate to ages 7 to 10 years old.  This time around, we finished the book.  My 10 year old was still interested, but my 12 year old decidedly wasn’t.  Still, for The Magic Treehouse fans, this was a good book.

This book has 146 pages.
