Can you help me find a list of sixth grade reading books that doesn't include poetry but does include fiction non- fiction, and classics
Scottsdale public library has listed some books for 6th-graders: http://library.ci.scottsdale.az.us/kids/grade6.htm .
Some schools have made their own lists of recommended literature, for example http://www.mcps.k12.md.us/schools/northbethesdams/lmp_reading.htm .
Some book pulblishers have also listed their suggestions: http://www.hedgehogbooks.com/cgi-local/cart/grade.cgi?grade=6 .
It’s not difficult to find more in the Internet using any search engine by using such search terms as ‘book lists’ and ‘6th grade’.
In Helsinki City Library librarians have listed book tips for each grade: http://www.lib.hel.fi/lastensivut/listat.htm#ya They are in Finnish, but there are some originally English books on the list for 5th and 6th grade pupils: Gaiman, Neil: Coraline, Gorman, Carol: Dork in the run, Wilson, Jacqueline: The suitcase kid, Nicholson, William: The wind singer. Using Helsinki City Library Kid’s catalogue search in English http://www.helmet.fi/screens/srchhelp_kidsmain_s1.html you can find English books on various topics.
