Mo Willems introduces the list of the top 10 books for 7 year old kids 2017 – with The Thank You Book.

Gerald and Piggie are as close as best friends could be, but they are complete opposites. Where Gerald is cautious, reserved, and worrisome, Piggie is impulsive, outgoing, and adventurous. In this story, Piggie is in a “thanking” mood, but he forgets to say thanks to the one who matters most.

The Book with No Pictures by B.J. Novak also makes it to one of the top books for seven year old boys and girls this year.

In the words of Alice before she journeyed to Wonderland, “How could one possibly like a book without any pictures in it?” This book is picture-less, but heaps of interactive fun with words and actions alone. Lots-a laugh-out-loud reading time.

Marking the 6th spot on the list – Star Wars Character Encyclopedia, Updated and Expanded by Pablo Hidalgo.

Star Wars is an awesome series, but it can be a challenge to keep up with all of the characters and scenarios. Sure, we all know Darth Vader, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia, but there are hundreds of other characters. This book is the expanded and updated edition.

7. Are We There Yet? by Dan Santat

Are We There Yet? by Dan Santat is another new addition to the “hot list” of 7 year old books for this spring and summer.

When we were kids, we delighted in asking our parents, “are we there yet?” Now, as parents, we dread that question. This story answers the question in a creative, imaginative way, when a little boy time travels backwards because the car ride forward is soooo sloooow. Pirates, dinosaurs, and princesses!
