Children’s Literature, Spring 2018

I usually post what my students will be reading, and I’m late getting this up. Here are the books they can choose from this semester:

Modern Fantasy:

The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate

The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill

The BFG by Roald Dahl

Historical Fiction:

Roll of Thunder, Hear by Cry by Mildred Taylor

Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan

Call It Courage by Armstrong Sperry

I Survived: The Battle of Gettysburg by Lauren Tarshis

Contemporary Realistic Fiction:

Dear Mr. Henshaw by Beverly Cleary

Ghost by Jason Reynolds

The Goldfish Boy by Lisa Thompson

“Mixed Genre” novels:

The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman

Holes by Louis Sachar

Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse

Everyone is currently reading The Wizard of Oz, and each student will choose two other books, based on an author and on a theme.

It’s going to be a great semester of reading!
