There’s also the possibility that Sean’s dad is gay—Justin’s reasoning is that he sends Sean shiny trinkets from Puerto Rico. Some of you might have already read his short story "The Abacus" in SuperHERo Tales: A Collection of Female Superhero Stories (Volume Two). Not to mention that Meg wears braces and glasses and has mouse-brown hair. Is this a fair description of Atticus's own courage in trying to save Tom? The dialogue in the Wondercolts' corner before Capture the Flag is longer.

Favorite here. 4 siblings, a boat, an island, some friendly rivals. Animal-loving Lulu’s dilemma rings true, and no-nonsense Mrs. Replete with small yet unforgettable incidents (an almost-ruined diorama, a failed attempt to stay up all night, squabbles and serene moments with little sister Sal, the difficult decision to call his father “Dad” rather than “Papa”), this book is funny, poignant, and irresistible. The story of her dedication to her craft and the creation of Anne of Green Gables, her best -- loved character, is told in level -- appropriate language and detailed illustrations.] The Wright Brothers [inventors of the airplane.

It could be nothing but it could be something. Sobol I adored these mysteries when I was a kid and my kids feel the same way now. Although there isn’t the build-up of questions leading to the solving of a mystery as there was in Dumpy to the Rescue, children will find Biscuit’s antics and his owner’s frustration hilarious as she tries to get him to walk to Grandpa’s. All of the kids live in the same apartment building in NYC. The word is used both in the singular (as a compound) and in the plural. (Allen & Judson)

Maiasaura, Lambeosaurus, and T-rex, oh my! Its heroine performs the fun-sounding “running bunjitsu head-butt” while focusing on the discipline, restraint, and wisdom needed to become a true warrior. Then, the copious blood from my wound trickled down toward the hole. To keep track of each book, I kept notes on each book, rating it on a 5 point scale. That means that students are exposed to a mini-lesson on reading (e.g., Inferring how a character feels), then read independently while practicing the skill or strategy learned in the mini-lesson, and then share their ideas with a reading partner.

But overall we enjoyed the first few of them. Learning to select books that captivate us, that inform us, that validate us, and that extend our thinking is a life skill. Everyday, they hear the thud of an axe on a tree, and Pa wants to leave. Chilling from start to finish this is a brilliant, fast moving and spooky story. Right now, there are twelve Stand-Alone Books that students can read at the end of Level 3, ten for students at the end of Level 4, and five for students at the end of Level 5.

5+ readers Inspired by the biblical story of Noah's Ark this is an action-packed modern day rendition with plenty of twists and turns. Manuscripts can range from about 5,000 words to about 15,000 words, max. And of course, my boys think they are the best books ever! All the Kings of Canaan come up to do him Honor. The Mercy Watson series is a nice transition for young readers from picture books to chapter books. When Justina and her crew are hired to find out who has been vandalizing the sets of the school play, Ju never expects that she would wind up steeped in a deeper and more important mystery concerning her own identity.

How will the lonely beetle fill his time? Without the right mindset and awareness, Pokemon Go is not only dangerous to play but can be hazardous to non-players as well. These books have very low price points: about $3.99 to $6.99, unless, of course, they’re published in hardcover. For Hank, fourth grade does not start out on the right foot. Because of Winn-Dixie, India meets all sorts of characters, and figures out quite a bit about herself, and her life, in the process.

The books are generally pretty fun and sometimes involve some kind or moral. Some schools are quite accommodating, while others are extremely rigid. I meet fifth graders every week who describe a character in a book at level U as “nice.” To me, that’s level K work in a level U text. 11+ readers Interest Teen Reading Age 8+. Powerfully told, The First Hunter captures the harsh world of early hunters who survive by stealing the meat that the big cats kill. As I have done in previous posts, I want to recommend not just the listing of suggested books, but the entire chapter that Emma Walton Hamilton devotes to this age group — Elementary School: Nurturing the Budding Reader — pages 57 to 87 in Raising Bookworms.
