Landon Book Fair - Rising 6th Grade - Recommended Reading List

By The Story House

By The Story House

Summer is a great time to kick back with a book whether you’re hanging out at home, at camp, or on a family trip. We encourage you to read for pleasure as much as possible during the summer.  Keep your reading skills sharp by setting aside a time during the day to read.


Students are required to read five books over the summer. One required book, D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths by Ingri and Edgar d’Aulaire , and four free choice books either from our suggested list below or books of your own choosing.

 

Students may choose free choice books from different categories but only one may be a graphic novel. Students may listen to audio books but not exclusively.
