This report is worth a read — it is a look by Renaissance Learning at books that kids have been reading in 2008-2009 school year (based on data from Accelerated Reading programs, so just keep that in mind).
Looking at the sixth grade list, some fiction titles jump out:
- Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney
- Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (plus all of her other books)
- The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
- Hatchet by Gary Paulson
- A variety of Lemony Snicket books
- And more
Neat and in time for anyone wanting to buy a book gift for a young person.
Peace (in the pages),
