  3. We need to ask kids more often what they would like to read but also give them a variety to choose from too.

    1. Absolutely, Naila. Students have a lot of choice in my room, but we also do a lot of longer book clubs where they are choosing from a specific selection of great books.

    1. Absolutely, agreed, Rebecca. The kids were invited to include any books, whether they read them alone or with their family, which also helped broaden their choices.

  6. With four kids we have read nearly all the books on this list. My youngest even saw a couple that are still her favorites even though she's a 5th grader now. Thanks for sharing!
