Book List K-5

Book List K-5

As a librarian I found it of value to put together a book list for classroom teachers. This is a primary book list for grades 1-4. It is broken down by sections- easy, chapter, informational, poetry, beginner, and riddles. It is a great list for parents too. You can use list to develop your classroom library or give it to your classroom parents.
