Welcome to TweenCity!

This blog is designed to be a selection resource for children between the ages of 9-14, as well as a reader's advisory tool for both current and future librarians.

PLEASE NOTE: An appropriate age range is given for each title, however this is merely a suggestion. Children, especially tweens, read at many different levels which cannot be determined simply by age or grade level. Therefore, it is important to assess each child's reading level before suggesting titles. In addition, since this blog is designed for tweens only, some titles listed may also be appropriate for children older or younger than ages 9-14, but these ages will not be listed.

Ages 9-12: Elementary school level (Grades 3-6)
Ages 12-14: Middle school level (Grades 7-8)

Telgemeier, Raina. The Baby-Sitters Club: Kristy's Great Idea. Scholastic, 2006. ISBN 0439802415. Ages 9-12.

Kristy, Claudia, Mary Anne and Stacey are back in this graphic novel based on the 1988 book by Ann M. Martin. The series’ first book tells the story of how it all began—with Kristy’s great idea to start the Baby-Sitters Club. As each girl tackles life in the seventh grade, they also handle the responsibilities of running the club and the challenges of working together. But through it all, it is their friendship that makes them special. This new graphix series brings a modern touch to a much-loved story. Telgemeier’s illustrations capture each character perfectly, bringing the BSC to life like never before!
