4th Grade Books Recommended by a Fourth Grader September 4, 2011

I was assigned a summer reading project for going into 4th grade and I had to read five books and write about them. These were the books I chose. My favorite book out of all of them is Mr. Popper’s Penguins and I recommend them for kids in fourth grade but also third grade and fifth grade might like them too.

Frindle by Andrew Clements

I liked this book because it was about a boy that was really young and he got famous because he just made up this word, “frindle,” instead of pen.

The Tail of Emily Windsnap series by Liz Kessler
