Tentative Selections for Grades 4 & 5

As previously stated, our committee was considering these choices for fourth and fifth grades:

Extra Credit by Andrew Clements
Igraine the Brave by Cornelia Funke
Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman
Flight of the Phoenix (Beastologist, Book 1) by R.L. LaFevers

The Maze of Bones (39 Clues, Book 1) by Rick Riordan
A Crooked Kind of Perfect by Linda Urban

The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo
Return of the Homework Machine by Dan Gutman
Zoobreak by Gordon Korman

So far, we have selected Extra Credit, Igraine the Brave, Odd and the Frost Giants and The White Giraffe for this age group. We still need four more books.

I'm rooting for A Crooked Kind of Perfect. (Yea Rah Boooooook!) I also think the students would enjoy The Maze of Bones, which is a fun read.

We're going to use Flight of the Phoenix for third graders. (But ooooooooh. Could it work for this age group? My fourth grader liked it....)
