Please Do Not Read these novels!
This is a list of novels that fifth grade uses for instructional purposes. While we realize that students may occasionally have read some of these books we would appreciate you not choosing any of these books for summer reading. It will diminish your child's enthusiasm for reading if they have read extensively from this list.
Students will not read all the novels on this list in fifth grade. Your child's teacher will select from this list the novels most appropriate for your child.
