Hi All,

I am new to 3rd grade next year. Actually I will be teaching a 3/4 mulitage. I am so excited about it. I need some lower level books for my classroom library so kids can choose books at an appropriate level. I only have upper elem books. (4-8). Any authors or titles would be greatly appreciated.

2nd grade books

Some 2nd grade books are:

Frog and Toad, Henry and Mudge (these are pretty low-- you probably don't need too many)

High Rise Private Eyes (Rylant)

Poppleton (Rylant)

Amelia Bedelia (don't let it throw you-- it took my second graders until late in the year until they were ready to actually understand the word plays in these books)

Nate the Great and Cam Jansen (both mystery books)

Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot (Dav Pilkey, author of Captain Underpants, and good for boys who don't like too much)

_______________________________ ______________________
Some harder, more mid- end of the year 2nd grade series:

Geronimo Stilton (these are great! kids love them!)

Magic Tree house AND Magic Tree House Research Guides (These are the BEST! They are totally non-fiction with photos and captions and all. They usually are companions to MTH books. So there's a rainforest one to go with the Magic Tree House rainforest story.)

Junie B. Jones

Captain Underpants (Dav Pilkey)

My Father's Dragon (three books... third graders would LOVE them. They make awesome read alouds too)

I agree with all the ones BookMuncher mentioned. Plus,my girls love all the Pony Pals--Jeanne Betancourt (chapter books), the boys love Marvin Redpost (can't remember author-books at school), and they all love Horrible Harry books. ANYTHING by Kevin Henkes is a hit.

My students love Cam Jansen mysteries; there's a whole series. Also, there is a lower-level Animal Ark series. There is an intermediate Animal Ark series as well, but now there's a line of these animal rescue books for the youngers. Robert Munsch books are often on a 2nd gr. level; although they're picture books, the kids sure love to read 'em.

Don't forget Jan Brett books. She has a wonderful website for activities as well. I use her in 3rd grade and the children really like it. Patricia Pollacco has great books as well.

I would add Horrible Harry by Suzy Kline, the Jigsaw Jones mysteries by James Preller, and the Magic Tree House books by Mary Pope Osborne.
