I have compiled over 100 of the best books for 9 year old boys to enjoy that moms will approve of.
We have been really lucky and Freddie has always enjoyed reading. Even as a young baby, he would always enjoy looking through soft books. Fast forward 8 years and he still absolutely loves reading all types of books.
We have books in every room of the house, from reference books to reading books. If you are looking for a fun way to get kids reading, why not play the book bingo game with them. The benefits of reading books are such an integral part of children’s lives. Check out over 15 ways to encourage kids to read more.
My son absolutely loves reading, check out our favorite book lists for kids there are over 20 book lists included for kids of all ages, for school, for reading, and for every season. Plus lots of free book printables.
When we have completed a book he always writes a book report. We do this for three reasons, one is for our homeschool portfolio, two is to ensure he understood the book, and lastly to get him writing! If you are looking for a book report template grab our FREE printable, and our free reading log printables are a great way to visualize and incentivize the books they have read.

Books for Nine Year Old Boys
Finding the right book can be hard, but we have broken this huge list of books into different sections:
- Book series
- Nature books
- Joke books
- Educational books
- History books
- Geography books
- Activity books
- Reference books
If your child does not typically read, but loves dinosaurs, then head straight to the nature book section. Encourage them to read, any type of book, it doesn’t need to be a book series. We love them all in our home, but we know lots of children who prefer non-fiction books. That’s ok!

If like me you like buying books in bulk (as it is cheaper!!) I highly recommend all of these book series. We have had the pleasure of interviewing the author of the Barry Loser books, please check it out.
