Grade 5 - A list of books recommended for G5 students.

Above you will find a list of recommended books for your grade.  In order to present a balanced list we have tried to include the following in each list:

  • Chapter books
  • Picture books (yes, even for older readers)
  • Comic books and Graphic Books
  • Nonfiction and informational texts
  • Books that are easy and books that are challenging
  • Books that make us laugh and make us think
