Because gifted children tend to love to read, it can be difficult to have enough books for them! And sometimes it’s hard to know the kinds of books they like, especially when they’re just beginning to read.
Not all gifted children will enjoy all the same books, so you still need to figure out what kinds of books your child likes. To help you figure that out, take your child to the public library often and pull out a variety of books, both fiction and non-fiction, for him or her to look at. Observe your child’s reaction to the books and should be able to tell what kinds of books your child likes.
To get you started, though, check out some of the books listed here, and be sure to learn how to use other criteria for choosing the right books for your child.
