Book Ideas by Grade

Updated: Nov 5, 2018


The PTA at my school is incredible. I realize how lucky I am. This summer they approached me about being in charge of Adventure Books for the school. If you don't know--Travel Through Text began because of Adventure Books (I send a book to you, you pass it on to a friend, etc.). My PTA funded 9 books per grade, and I got to pick them out!! I facilitate the whole thing--I give a book to a student, they sign their name, they give it back to me, I pass it on to the next student. You should see my excel spreadsheet keeping this organized--it's epic! I got to visit every class in the school to book talk + get them excited about this program. I was nervous about how well it would work. We're two months in and it's going stronger than I ever imagined. I spent hours finalizing my list so I thought I would share it here!

** in my opinion, the "grades" are interchangable--grades 3-6 can read any of the books in any of those categories. I'd also recommend the 4-6 books to anyone! middle school, junior high, high school, adults. and older kids would love the picture books!
