Third Grade Read-Aloud Novels
These are books that we have chosen for you to read aloud to your third graders. We have chosen them because of their beauty in prose, art, and content. We feel it is essential that you read to your children, and when you read aloud, choose books that are a grade level above your children’s reading level. These are good books that have survived the test of time—books that are well written and beautifully illustrated.
