Genius Kids On A Mission by Ekta Bhatnagar is perfect for kids age group 7+. This book contains two stories, and each story is in a chapter form. If your child is transitioning to a chapter book, this would be a good bet.
This verse on the very first page – “For all kids who know that grown – ups hardly understand them” was more than enough to fascinate me. I picked up the book right away and started reading it. I could so relate to this story. My 8-year-old always complains that we don’t understand him.
