Grade Six students recommend 2016

A book I enjoyed reading ... Grade Six 2016

Each year I use our student Year Book to list here on my blog the favourite books named by our Grade Six students.

Below are links to some past lists. .  There were a lot of new choices this year and not so many of the obvious popular titles which I find quite exciting.


It is interesting this year to see such a huge variety of titles.  Only a few titles were mentioned more than once.  Hatchet (3), Rain Reign (4), Alex Rider (2), Harry Potter (2) and Wonder (6).
