Best Selling Children's Books 2015

Updated on December 18, 2014

As all parents know: reading and the books children read are fundamental to the development of their minds and how they perceive the world.

All the books we review in best selling children's books 2015 are very good. For the best results I recommend picking something which appeals to your child's specific taste.

If you are reading the book to your child, pick something that both of you will enjoy. Your passion for he material will improve the experience for both of you.

If you are having trouble getting your children to read, I recommend going with the first book in an exiting adventure series. That way they will want to read every book in the series.

The Red Pyramid

This is a gripping tale from Rick Riordan about families, family ties and the ultimate triumph of good over evil. It is about siblings Sadie and Carter who are separated after the death of their mother, but come together to save their family and the world from the evil Egyptian god Set.
The book is published by Hyperion books and is ideal for ages 9-12.

Alice In Wonderland

This timeless classic written by Lewis Carroll has bounced up on the best sellers list after the Alice In Wonderland movie.

Though Alice in Wonderland is mostly a children's book, which takes the reader on a magical imaginative journey, it also has a lot that will appeal to an adult.That makes this a book that both child and parents can enjoy, for different reasons.

Oh, the Places You'll Go!

This is on of the Dr. Seuss masterpiece. The book is a hopeful forecast and a tongue in the cheek warning for kids about the great things they will achieve and the what they will have to look out for in their life journey.

Ideal for all age groups, it is suitable for anyone who is starting off something- a career, a school, a class or anything else.

      I read The Red Pyramid when it came out and am now reading to my Reading class (7th-9th graders) as a read aloud. They are loving it!!

      I also read The Hunger Games last summer after it was recommended to me by a colleague and am now teaching/reading it with my Reading class. They absolutely love it! Many of my students finished reading the book ahead of the class and have even gone on to read Catching Fire and Mockingjay!! This is a wonderful series and has engaged my students in some great discussions. We are all looking forward to the movie's release next March.

      You have some great books included on your list. It is so important to find books that interest a child. Without the interest they won't read.
