Minecraft. You may have heard of this block building phenomenon.
My kids love to play minecraft. On the computer, ipad, phone, on any device, really.
I would much rather my kids read than play video games. So imagine my joy when my son tells me there was a fictional Minecraft series he wanted to read!
From a mom stand point, the books have a so-so plot line. My gamer son thought they rocked!
However, I was pleased with the vocabulary in the stories. For example instead of using the simple word “inside” the author used “interior”.
There are four stories in this series by Winter Morgan.
The suggested age range on the back cover is 7-12. Unless the seven year old is an amazing reader-these books may be a little challenging to read alone.
These titles were just right for my 9 year old, with chapter length, wording, and plot.
Minecrafters will enjoy following Steve and his treasure hunting friends on their adventures. Moms will enjoy that the kids not gaming but are happily reading.
