Top 10 Favorite Children's Books of Fourth Graders

I recently surveyed the first through sixth grade students at my school about their favorite children's books, and I am presenting the results as a series of posts. This post will share the Top 10 Favorite Books among the first grade students. Other posts include Top 20 Favorite Children's Books, sharing the overall results across all grade levels and including interviewed parents, and the Top 10 Favorite Books of First GradersSecond Graders, and Third Graders.

Top 10 Favorite Children's Books of Fourth Graders

#1 Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney. Wimpy kid books are big favorites with my third graders, and the passion continues into fourth too.

#2 Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. Harry Potter was a strong contender in many grade levels and was the overall top book when combined.

#3 Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo. This book is one of the read alouds at the beginning of the school year in fourth grade, and it is clear that it made a big impression on the students.

#4 Christopher Mouse by William Wise. This read aloud was in the middle when the fourth graders were surveyed. While several students objected, since they hadn't yet finished the story, others convinced them that it already was a favorite.

#5 Frozen Fire: a tale of courage by James Houston. Rounding out the read aloud favorites is Frozen Fire.

#6 Big Nate series by Lincoln Peirce. Both the graphic novels and the longer books were popular among students.

#7 Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson. These classic comics continue to be big favorites.

#8 Books by Dr. Seuss. Even our fourth graders still love Dr. Seuss.

#9 Charlotte's Web by E. B. White. This classic, which our students read in second grade, is still remembered fondly and featured on the lists of many grade levels.

#10 Captain Underpants series by Dav Pilkey. Fourth graders fondly remember the antics of Captain Underpants!
