Books for Boys: Third Grade Reading List

Third Grade Reading List

And finally, here’s the next installment in the series, Books for Boys: Third Grade Reading List.  Every parent this time of year is scouring the library and the internet for good recommendations for their growing readers.  Here’s a list that I compiled for my two boys.  It’s full of books that your kids will love.  Books about adventure, time travel, danger & courage, funny animals, and silly stories…even a touch of gross and weird.

This list has recommendations that fall mostly in the genre of imaginative literature and chapter books however, there are also some great non-fiction selections for history and science.  If your young reader is struggling you can opt for the leveled readers at the top of the list.  If your reader is advanced you can venture towards the level 4 selections at the bottom of the list.  You’ll find a little something here for your kids wherever their abilities lie.  I recommend you print this list out and surf your local library’s online catalog to see what you can check out for free.

You can also find the rest of the “Books for Boys” series at the links below.  (ps.  you’ll also find great selections for girls on these lists…hey we like adventure too : )
