“What can you recommend for my students who are in 5th grade but read at a much lower level? They think most picture books are ‘babyish’ so anything that will appeal to them would be much appreciated.” ~ Teacher comment from Facebook
This is one of the comments that stands out as representing the overall tone of these requests. So this list, not really a top 10 but more of a reading list, is my top recommendations for children who are not quite at grade level for reading skill but need books with topics and stories that appeal to their maturity level and interests. These are books with a variety of subjects. Many have the option for narration with highlighting word-for-word. I’ve broken them down into categories instead of a ranked listing, to aid parents & educators as they select book apps for older readers. As I come across new titles, I will add them to this post. If you have a suggestion for this list, please let me know in a comment.
