High interest books for a boy....
 
who is reading below level and has a strong interest in farming, pigs, and veterinarian science.

Any ideas? AR levels 3.5 -4.5 would be great.

More options
 
Kate DiCamillo wrote Mercy Watson series about a pig. It may be too easy though.

Also look at Farmer's Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder. It is part of the Little House series but is all about her husband Almanzo as a child growing up on a farm. It explains many of the functions of farms at the time.

Also, what about Charlotte's Web with Wilber the pig?

Also what about Dr. Dolittle?

Scroll down for the titles for older students. Good luck.
