More Book Recomendations–3rd Grades through 8th

Picture books are fun to share and read, but many parents, caregivers, and children think that they are something young children alone enjoy. Not so! There are many picture books that children in third, fourth, and fifth graders can enjoy. Storytelling, reading aloud, and talking about what is being read is a great way to bring students, families, and children together, learning about each other, the world around us, and ourselves. Here are some books that would be fun to share:
