6th. Grade Reading List


Recommended Posts

I would appreciate some suggestions on reading lists for my 6th grade advanced reader. I want to assign a book list that she can choose library books from to read in addition to literature assignments.


So far I have the following:

Anne of Green Gables series (she has read the first one)

Lord of the Rings Trilogy


What would you add?
