The creative imaginations of upper elementary age children make reading especially powerful for this age group. Their playful minds help the stories come alive. A home rich in books sparks self-directed discovery as children peruse the book shelves looking for just the right book to fill an inner need to seek out a tale, or find a story with a message just for them. Lively conversations about what's been read are likely to follow, too. Here are books that fourth to sixth graders would enjoy, and their parents as well!
