For 2nd grade:
- Clementine. The book Clementine is about an artistic 8-year-old girl. It is about her adventures at school and it is a very light-hearted, funny book.
- The Ivy and Bean series. Ivy & Bean is the story of two very different friends. In their neighborhood and at school, they find ways to be adventurous and fun together, often "forgetting" to follow the rules.
For 3rd grade:
Frindle. Frindle is an awesome book about a third-grader named Nick Allen who creates a new word that causes a lot of commotion. This book is funny, has awesome vocabulary words, and almost everyone can relate to it.
The Wild Robot. This book is about a robot that fell out of a cargo ship from a storm and has to adapt to life on an island. This book teaches concepts like hospitality, kindness, accepting of new people, and more.
For 4th grade:
Where the mountain meets the moon. This book is set in ancient China, where a girl in a poor family, named Minli sets off to go to the never-ending mountain to change her families fortune. This fantasy book has lots of good lessons, like gratefulness, faith, honesty, integrity, and more. I definitely recommend this book for ages 9- 11.
Number The Stars. This book is about a young girl named Annalise, set in the 1940s in Denmark when Germany took over the country. Annalise helps hide her Jewish friend and protect her from the Nazis. This is a good book too, number one inform people about the Holocaust and number two, it is just a great story about friendship and bravery.
So, these were some of my favorite books that I have read over the years. I hope you like them too. Please leave a comment to tell me what you thought of these books!
