On My TBR List
When I found out I was going to be teaching 4th grade next year, I immediately emailed Tony Keefer (@tonykeefer) to recommend some great books that beginning 4th graders (especially boys) might read--books that I would not normally pick up on my own. I love having Tony as one of my reading friends--we enjoy some of the same books but overall, our tastes are different. So I can always count on Tony to recommend good books I may not have discovered on my own. Here are three of the books he recommended that I picked up today. They are series that I have dabbled in but I really need to commit to so I'm ready for lots of different 4th grade readers in the fall.
THE RIOT BROTHERS by Mary Amato
A CHET GECKO MYSTERY by Bruce Hale
FRANKIE PICKLE by Eric Wight
Any other suggestions for great books for early 4th graders?
