This series is recommended for 4th graders.
Dinosaurs Before Dark (Magic Tree House, #1) by Mary Pope Osborne Dinosaurs Before Dark
This series is recommended for 2nd graders.
The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo The Tale of Despereaux
An award winning book for 4th and 5th graders.
The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog (Hank the Cowdog #1) by John R. Erickson
The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog
A hilarious series for 4th to 5th graders.
I think only Tale of Despereaux would qualify for award winning. I really should read all the posts. ;p

Okay, so in no particular order here are three children's novels that I think everyone should read.

1.Stargirl By Jerry Spinelli-I'm still learning lessons from this book.
Stargirl (Stargirl, #1) by Jerry Spinelli


2. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry- a fictional introduction to the Holocaust for children
Number the Stars by Lois Lowry


3. Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher by Bruce Coville- Ok, so this may not be life changing, but it was such a good book to me. Apparently it also inspired Christopher Paolini's Inheritance Series.
Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher (Magic Shop, #2) by Bruce Coville
