Summer is a great time to encourage your 4th grader to be reading. How do you get reading lists that are appropriate for elementary age students? I encourage you to check with your local library. Also a great site for homeschoolers to check is Homeschool Literature.com.
Some of my favorite books for 4th grade include:
- The Secret Garden
- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
- Little House on the Prairie
- The Black Stallion
- The Borrowers
If your child is a reluctant reader, you may want to think about audio books instead. The are a great alternative and can be listened to in the car on that summer vacation trip!
