To help my kids choose great literature to read over the summer, I have compiled Book Lists by grade level for them. It can be overwhelming trying to find a good book to read, but with a list in hand, you can embark on all sorts of adventures and discover new authors.

Each of these books is found at our small Library, so the hope is that they are books that are found in nearly every Library. Unfortunately, many books didn’t make the cut simply because our Library didn’t have them. The list I was able to come up with seems pretty comprehensive though. I have read many of the books on these lists, but not every single one. I took the books that were listed most often on the many book lists I reviewed. Please offer suggestions as to other books your kids love near the same level so we can expand our list!
