Matilda Review
Matilda - Roald Dahl,Quentin Blake

Matilda, is a must read book for all children. I would use this book with higher grades, 3rd-5th. This book is about a little girl who must put up with her crazy family and evil principal, and uses her powers of telekinesis to protect herself and those she loves. I think students would really enjoy reading this book. I would use this book in my classroom to have students practice reading comprehension by having whole group/ or small group discussions of the story. (Book Reading Level: Lexile 840L)

Bud, Not Buddy Review
Bud, Not Buddy - Christopher Paul Curtis

Bud, Not Buddy, is a good book to use with older grades like 4th-5th grade. It is a story about an orphaned boy and his journey to find his true home. It is a humor filled story that kids will enjoy reading. I would use this book in my classroom to read as a whole class and then practice doing a book review on it by analyzing the characters, setting, themes, conflicts, and other story elements.

Tuck Everlasting
Tuck Everlasting - Natalie Babbitt

Tuck Everlasting is a chapter book that explores the concepts of immortality, life, and death. These are pretty advanced concepts, so I would save this book for an upper grade. I may even let my advanced readers read this independently, or as a literature circle book. According to Fountas and Pinnell, this book would be leveled as a V Level book. This is because it require critical thinking and harsh themes.
