More Books for 4th and 5th Graders from Greeneville City Schools's Reading Specialist Website

This book list is to give parents more suggestions for books to share with Fourth and Fifth Grade children.  This list was created with help from The Children's Literature Lover's Book of Lists written by Joanna Sullivan, Ed.D.  You may find that these books are too challenging for your child to read on his or her own. If so, read the book aloud to your child one chapter a night and share the love of a good book!
