The Teachers' Choices Project: 3-5

Yesterday I listed the Teachers' Choices Project K-2 list. Today I will list the 3-5 grades literature teachers pick that were exceptional for students to read or to be used in the curriculum. The International Reading Association's Teachers' Choices project has been in existence since 1989. Below are the choices for intermediate grades:
