Landon Book Fair - Rising Form I & Form II - 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.

 

Rising 7th Grade students are required to read Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah. 

Rising 8th Grade students are required to read the graphic novels March (Books 1, 2 and 3) by John Lewis over the summer. 

 

In addition, students will read three 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.
