3rd Grade Rooted in Reading Book List

Guys.... it's time! 3rd Grade Rooted in Reading is coming your way.
Amy and I have read a gajillion picture books over the past few weeks in search of the VERY BEST literature for your 3rd graders. Thanks to Amazon Prime we've had several books delivered to us daily {#booksuponbooksuponbooks}.
Some were great. Some were NOT. You see... we needed FORTY books... FORTY books that were wonderful, deep, and engaging. FORTY books that would captivate your students. FORTY books that would help your students find new authors, characters, and storylines to love. FORTY books to make some of your readers fall in love with reading again.
And, y'all, I think we did it. We've got a collection of books that are diverse, from different genres, and set in different time periods. We've got FORTY of the most beautiful stories you ever will read! Are you ready for it???

All of the books above are linked to Amazon. We are in no way saying they have the best prices. We are just obsessed with Amazon Prime because we like fast delivery, ha! Here's what we suggest... Print out the 3rd Grade Book List that you can find {HERE}. Take it with you when you go to Half Price Books, garage sales, your friend's house, etc. Collect books as you find them, beg for books from neighbors, heck... take the list to your principal and see if they are willing to buy the collection!
Click Below to grab a printable list off of TpT. We will be adding an overview of skills in a couple of months. In the document you will also find unit release dates and the genres included!
Our August unit will be released in May so that you can have it waaaaaayyyy before back to school!
We hope that you enjoy all of these charming picture books as much as we do!
