GREAT READ ALOUDS for 4th and 5th Grade

Twelve-year-old Kyle gets to stay overnight in the new town library designed by his hero (the famous gamemaker Luigi Lemoncello) with other students but finds that come morning he must work with friends to solve puzzles in order to escape.

Fish in a Tree- Lynda Mullaly Hunt

Ally's greatest fear is that everyone will find out she is as dumb as they think she is because she still doesn't know how to read. A must read if you enjoyed, Wonder by R. J. Palacio!

Circus Mirandus- Cassie Beasley
