Reading List

I have a very short reading list prepared. I haven't spent much time searching the net for good books. I am open to sixth-grade reading recommendations. Here's the list so far:

Bud, Not Buddy
Julie of the Wolves
Tom's Midnight Garden
The Castle in the Attic
The Hobbit
The Giver
The Phantom Tollbooth
Cheaper by the Dozen
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler
Mr. Popper's Penguins
Because of Winn Dixie
The Witch of Blackbird Pond
The Secret Garden

Thomas has been reading the Myth series by Robert Asprin (I think it's Robert Asprin's series, without getting off my chair to check.) Thomas has not yet read any of the Harry Potter books! So those might go on the list, too.

I like to have a big, long list at the beginning of each year. This list is way too short. I like for Thomas to read half the books on the list.

"The Lightning Thief" by Rick Riordan. (Plus, there are now 2 sequels.)

I read this last summer (my nephew's book) & really enjoyed it. Dh read it too, lol.

Highly recommended here.

the GA peach ;-)

my oldest is currently rereading The Banner in the Sky. He just finished rereading the Little House series. He read the abridged version of Tom Sawyer then asked if he was old enough for the original. I really need to pay the library so they'll let me back in and we can all stop rereading books and get some new ones. Does Thomas like Roald Dahl?
