Fourth Grade Books

Fourth-graders gather more information by reading than ever before. They are interested in nonfiction books about people and the things they do. Stories with outrageous characters tickle their funny bones. Having a variety of materials available, magazines, newspapers, and books, encourages reading as a leisure activity. Reading aloud with fourth-graders should be an essential part of their lives.
