Favorite Third Grade Read Alouds

I just love a good book list! I can't help but look through it for our family favorites but I also love to keep an eye out to discover new favorites. TJ's third-grade year was filled with some fabulous books for kids. We listened to many audio books, read more books while we cuddled on the couch, and even re-listened to some old favorites.

The Candymakers by Wendy Mass was one of her favorites of the year (I think we've listened to it 3 times now). If your library has the audio version, we recommend it for you and your kids. It's a great story that's told from different points of view (and provides a great lesson in teaching about point of view!).

If you have a book you just love to read with your elementary kids, please let me know about it!

Fabulous books for kids

I really can't say enough good things about cuddling with your child and reading a good book together. Even when TJ has friends sleep over I read aloud to them and they all love to be read to. After one particularly exciting chapter, TJ had to lend the book to her friend when we'd finished reading it because he just had to know what happened. I guess you can't give a book a better recommendation than that!

Here's a list of our very favorite read alouds during TJ's third-grade year:
