The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig
The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig: A Pop-Up Storybook with a Twist in the Tale! - Eugene Trivizas,Helen Oxenbury

Reading this book allows for the students to experience different versions of folktale stories. The book could be used in a 4th-6th grade classroom. You could have the students compare and contrast two different versions of the story. You could also have the students create a story that follows the same outline of the story. The Three Little _________ and the Big Bad ____________.

Bridge to Terabithia
Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson

This book has two main characters who use their imagination to go on an adventure and build a land that they rule over. The book comes to a close with a tragic death of one of the main characters. I would use this book in grades 4-6.  For an activity, I would have the students make a venn diagram to compare the two main characters.

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

This book follows a boy and his friends as they navigate life as wizards. I would use this book in 6th grade. I would encourage the students to continue to read the rest of the series. The book would be great to have group discussions. The students could write an add for Harry Potter's Flying Nimbus.

Where the Red Fern Grows
Where the Red Fern Grows - Wilson Rawls

I would use this book in a 6th grade class. It would be a good book to practice foreshadowing.

Hatchet
Hatchet - Gary Paulsen

Hatchet is a very descriptive story that uses the senses to draw you in. I would use this book in 5th or 6th grade. I would have the students write about what they would include in a backpack and why.
