Welcome to Fourth Grade!

We would like all rising fourth graders to read at least 3 books this summer and record what they’ve read on the attached reading log. Audiobooks are also fine. The following are titles we think you might enjoy. We Need Diverse Books, 1000 Black Girl Books, A Mighty Girl and Goodreads are also great resources for books to read over the summer.
