Best Children’s Books for 7-9 Year Olds: Christmas 2023 Gift Guide

Books make for a wonderful choice of Christmas gifts for children and we’re here to help with some top recommendations of children’s books for Christmas 2023.

From timeless bedtime stories and curious information books to festive favourites and glorious gift books, we’ve selected our top recommendations of book gifts for children aged 7-9.  We’ve tried to include something for all tastes – look out for rooftop present deliveries, children accidentally sleeping through Christmas, North Pole adventures and intergalactic science in this year’s Christmas Gift Guide for 7- to 9-year-olds.

Whether you are looking for jolly, festive stories like The Christmas Carrolls or music-filled interactive adventures like The Boy Who Slept Through Christmas, we hope this guide will fill your young readers with plenty of seasonal cheer. We’ve also included KS2 popular favourites like The Land of Roar and super fun choose-your-own-adventure style books like Solve Your Own Mystery: The Monster Maker, as well as information books for curious minds like Wild Animals of the World and beautiful knowledge compendiums to treasure, such as the Britannica All New Children’s Encyclopedia.
