As we continue our “For Fans Of” Summer Reading blog series, we’ll spotlight books for children in grades 3 through 5 in this post. In order to keep kids thinking critically about the books they’re reading during the summer months, it’s great to pose a few questions to engage in a conversation about books in a low-stakes discussion:
- How were the main characters similar? How were they different?
- What kinds of problems did the characters face in both of the books? Were any of their problems similar? Why or why not?
- Would you recommend this book to a friend? What would you tell them about it? Why did you enjoy it?
See our Diverse Summer Reading List for the full list of titles from grades PreK to grade 8.
