    "My wife tutors young kids and is always trying to recommend books for them to read to help develop their reading skills. I searched for the best juvenile fiction books for ages 7-12 to give her some ideas to give to her students. I recently stumbled upon "The Silver Chair (The Chronicles of Narnia)" which is the sixth book in the series. I was impressed with a quick read through so I told her to let her students give it a try. After recommending it to a couple of her students she has found that they completely love the book and the storyline. This is something that she will definitely continue to recommend to her students from here on out. "

    "I have read the entire Chronicles of Narnia series, and The Magician's Nephew is one of my favorite books from the series. I think The Magician's Nephew is a good book for children, but it might be a little to advanced for young children under 8. I still highly recommend this book though."
