Reading List by Grade

This is a list of the books we love.  It can be hard to find good Christian books for kids.  I have searched a long time to find a list of books that were clean and uplifting, ones that build character and support our values.  I still haven't found one.  But slowly we have added to our library and here is a list of our books.  I always encourage my kids to read, even below grade level (especially when dealing with a struggling reader).  I want it to be fun and enjoyable.  Some of these books are on the Guetenburg website (ebooks).   Some of the books have links on this website already.  The grade levels are only estimates based on my kids reading levels.

I have linked some of the books (will be adding more).  They are either free books from the gutenburg website, Lamplighter Publishing books (our favorites), or boys series books.  I think it is hardest to find books for boys.  I hope you can find something your kids will like to read from our list!
