What are kids reading? Now you don’t have to wonder what types of titles are the most popular with different age groups around the country.

Renaissance recently released the 2021 What Kids Are Reading Report—and it has plenty of awesome info for educators and parents to access. The free downloadable report is a comprehensive, national report of student reading habits.

If you’re not sure how to help your child become a reader, what books can fuel their literary appetite, or are just on the hunt for more information on children’s books, this report is a must-download. Some of the study’s highlights include tools such as popular book maps for each grade band and state and popular book lists for each grade level.

The popular book lists tool is broken down into categories, such as popular topics, top print books, top digital books, popular Spanish titles, “New and Now” books and more.

Along with the tools and lists, the report also includes snapshots and spotlights from the past year. Look for topics such as “How Are Kids Reading During COVID-19?” and “How Are Teachers Keeping Kids Reading During COVID-19?”.
