Yes, these books are all on Kindle. Yes, these books were all found and purchased for free. Yes, the ones that list as grade levels have some really nice photography. Yes, they have some really good, but sparse information. They just did very simple information and again I feel that the books are too simple and too easy for the grades listed. 

 

If you have younger kids, these might be good starters.

I realize that these state that they are for 4th and 5th grades, but I felt that they might have some information that would be good for what we are studying, but these were too young. I felt that they would have been good for kindergarten or 1st graders over 4th or 5th graders. 

 

The pictures in the books were very well done and the wording was definitely for teaching, but was definitely too young for the grades mentioned.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

After living ten years being treated horribly by his aunt, uncle and cousin, Harry Potter discovers he is a wizard on his 11th birthday. From that moment on he is invited to a Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where he learns there is more to being a wizard than spells and wands. Together with his new friends school is a lot more interesting than figuring sums and trying to remember who ruled England in what century. Harry's out to discover who he is and the journey he takes to get there will keep you on the edge of your seat and keep reading to find out more.  This book would do well with a unit study as a class. Through the unit study the class would focus on point of view, character analysis, figurative language, plot, and theme. The students would have to write, re-read, analyze, work in teams, draw, seek evidence, and practice many language arts aligned skills to dive into the book. 

Reading Level: 4th grade to college

World Peace and Other 4th-Grade Achievements - John Hunter Hunter shares his innovative approach to helping students learn collaborative problem solving. I admire Hunter's "facilitator" approach to education which seeks to empower young people with analytical and critical thinking and decision making skills.
