Calling all bookish folks:

Do you have favorite, go-to books that you immediately turn to when recommending books for third and fourth graders? I’m compiling a recommended books list for my library, and thought it would be fun to learn the favorites of other library people (and bookish folk) to better inform my selections.

  • Frindle by Andrew Clements
  • the Fudge series by Judy Blume
  • The Grand Plan to Fix Everything by Uma Krishnaswami
  • The Year of the Book by  Andrea Cheng
  • Dumpling Days by Grace Lin
  • Matilda by Roald Dahl
  • Half Magic by Edward Eager
  • Ellie McDoodle: Have Pen, Will Travel by Ruth McNally Barshaw
  • Ramona Quimby, Age 8 by Beverly Cleary
  • The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger
  • The Chocolate Touch by Patrick Skene Catling

A few that I often rely on are listed above, (in no particular order), but I look forward to refreshing my repertoire with your tried-and-true suggestions!
