Books For 4th Graders to Read
Ben and Me
Ben and Me was an independent reader during our 4th-grade year. It was a really enjoyable way to learn about Ben Franklin. We used LLATL orange level for our Language Arts curriculum. (Learning Language Arts Through Literature) If you’d like to see a review of LLATL, you can check it out on my YouTube Channel: LLATL REVIEW.
The Sign of the Beaver
This book was also an independent reader. My son enjoyed this one a lot.
Tirzah was one of our read-alouds. I even loved this one. It was the story of the Exodus from a young girl’s perspective.
Fountain of Life
Fountain of Life was so good! My kids asked if there was a sequel. So, I looked, and to my surprise, there is!! It’s called Living Tabernacle. Needless to say, it is on my shelf now, and we can’t wait to read it.
The Boxcar Children
I’d say this was both of my 4th graders’ favorite! This was the first independent read this year. They loved it so much that they wanted to watch the movie on Netflix. I think they ended up watching that movie a dozen times!
This was another really good read aloud. It’s a “retelling of biblical redemption.” There is a lot of good character that can be taken from Grandpa’s box.
Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes
We are in the middle of this book as a read-aloud. It is a super fun adventurous book that we found at our local library!
Rush Revere Series
I can’t say enough about these. My first one was a gift from my dad to the kids. I wrote a review on this series. You can read it here. He bought us a couple more of the books in the series. It’s a fun way to learn about American History.
Wilbur and Orville Wright: Young Fliers (Childhood of Famous Americans)
Another great independent History reader.
Sassafras Science Adventures Volume 1: Zoology
We used Sassafras Adventures Zoology for Science this year. My kids adored this book. We used it as a read-aloud, but it could easily be read independently by upper elementary. Check out our YouTube video on Sassafrass Science: Sassafras Science Adventures
Sometimes there are those books that you get rid of after you read. Then there are those books that you can’t help but keep on your shelves. These are those kinds of books! What books do you love for your fourth graders???
