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. There is a nice mix of easy chapter books, chapter books, non-fiction, mysteries, folk tales, poetry, magazines and audio books. The range of topics also should appeal to even hard to please reluctant readers.
