I received the following email yesterday. I love this kind question. My only problem in answering it is keeping the list from getting overwhelming for the teacher!
“Do you have any chapter books that you would recommend for Third Graders as a class read aloud? We have read: Boxcar children, James and the Giant Peach, and The Tale of Despereaux. I wanted to give them a couple choices for a book we can read next. Thanks!”
