The Teachers' Choices Project: 6-8

Today I will list the Teachers' Choice project list for advanced readers. These are books that teachers picked as exceptional for instruction and good for parents to read aloud. Below are the choices for grades 6-8:

Grades 6-8, Ages 11-14
1. The Boy Who Dared, by Susan Cambell
2. Chains, by Laurie Halse Anderson
3. The Freedom Business, by Marilyn Nelson. Illustrated by Deborah Dancy
4. Great Peacemakers: True Stories From Around the World, by Ken Beller and Heather Chase
5. The Lincolns: A Scrapbook Look at Abraham and Mary, by Candace Fleming

6. Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out, by Created by 108 renowned authors and illustrators
7. A Thousand Never Evers, by Shanna Burg
8. Washington at Valley Forge, by Russell Freedman
9. We Are the Ship: The Story of Negro League Baseball, by Kadir Nelson
10. What the World Eats, by Faith D'Aluisio. Photograhs by Peter Menzel

There is so many good literature choices for students to read today. I hope the list from Teachers' Choices have been a help in finding something interesting for your child to read no matter what the age.
