New Books for Third Grade and Fourth Grade
These are the book recommended by my library. It skews a little young so you can use this for Going into 3rd grade if your child loves to read. This list is from my public library (Newton Free Library) and the books are newly published this year. Check to see if they are at your library.
There is a nice mix of easy chapter books, chapter books, non-fiction, mysteries, folk tales, poetry, magazines, and audiobooks. The range of topics also should appeal to even hard to please reluctant readers. Can you please add any books that are your or your child’s favorites? Thank you!
