Children's
Light Reads Under $10


We don't know about you, but we've been having a great time spending our weekends on the river or at the coast, basking in the sun and pretending that we moved to San Diego for three months. We know that in order to arrive at the intended sunny destination without looking like a bag lady, you need to maximize your beach-bag capacity for books — a perennial necessity for any vacay. We put together a list of our favorite novels, for kids ages 6 to 16, that are light in weight, readability, and price: they're all under $10!

There are 27 books in this aisle.
