A big THANK YOU to our teen volunteers who typed all these reviews so we could put them online.
Stay tuned to this blog for more posts with more reviews (organized by grade) as our volunteers keep hard at work!
It can be hard to motivate middle-schoolers with reading issues to pick up a book.
One way to engage them is to find books with themes they can relate to at a time when they’re trying to figure out who they are.
As each new school year approaches, I like to make a reading list for each of my kids for the upcoming school year.
Here is the list that I have made for my 7th grader.Thrift Books sells used books at the lowest everyday price on the internet.They have an unbeatable selection of 7 million books, honest/accurate grading and features that help you find out-of-print and second-hand treasures. Take a look at what other 7th grade students said about books they enjoyed.These reviews were submitted to the Library during past summer reading programs.The book details his struggles to fit in—or at least not stick out.Auggie is homeschooled until fifth grade, when he heads to his public school and really faces life in the public eye.He’s obsessed with getting more boys interested in reading.His new Frank Einstein graphic novel includes the engaging text and illustrations he’s known for.Mother Paula’s All-American Pancake House is determined to bulldoze an abandoned lot that just happens to be home to some miniature burrowing owls.This funny, engaging ecological mystery really ropes in middle school kids as they root for the hero. This set of five books is slightly less violent than Hunger Games, but just as captivating for middle school readers.
