Clip to ScrapBook #9

I always start the year with the chapter book:
Herbie Jones by Suzy Kline

It's about third grader Herbie and his best friend Ray and their enemy (turned girlfriend!) Anabelle. The boys go through some academic and social challenges that the kids love to hear about. It is very pertinent to third grade, and the kids always beg for more! It's also great because it is the first book in a short series (I think there are 8?) so the kids then scramble to read the rest of the series.

Other great ones:
Chocolate Touch
Ramona Quimby, Age 8
Time Warp Trio books by Jon Scizeka and Lane Smith
Frindle by Andrew Clements
Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
