Do you wish that the boys in your class read more? Do you wish they were interested in books besides just graphic novels? Do you have reluctant readers in your classroom? This list of 50 novels, with authors noted, is your ticket to engaging those boys.
I absolutely love my classroom library! I teach fourth grade, and I keep it stocked full of books; I currently have over 1,100 books for my students to check out and read. I have kept over a decade worth of meticulous notes on which books get checked out, which gender is checking them out, and what my students rate them. With this data, I have compiled a list of the 50 top novels for boys (not graphic ones!) that all third, fourth, and fifth grade classrooms need to engage their students!
