Welcome to Fourth Grade!
Before the beginning of school in September, each student entering fourth grade is required to have read this book over the summer:
"Stories to Solve – Folktales from Around the World” told by George Shannon
Inside the book are fourteen folktales from different countries. Each one involves a mystery that the characters in the story, as well as the reader, need to solve. If you read carefully and look for clues, you will be able to unlock these puzzles! In addition to this title, please choose FOUR other books to complete. Listed below are some books that we think you will enjoy. You may also pick other titles that are not listed, but we ask that you read a minimum of FIVE books this summer. Feel free to explore titles and authors, and we encourage you to read other folktales and stories from around the world.
On a piece of paper, list all the books you read, ask a parent to initial each one when you finish it, and bring the list with you on the first day of school. Have fun reading!
