Children's Literature

I am currently in college to be an elementary teacher. These are some books that I read as a child that I really enjoyed and ones I plan to use in my future classroom.

Where the Red Fern Grows

Where the Red Fern Grows - Wilson Rawls

Grade Level: 3-5, 6-8

Lexile Level: 700L

This book is about a young boy named Billy who buys a set of hunting dogs named Dan and Ann. Billy loves his dogs and trains them to hunt for raccoons with him. One day, after Dan is attacked by a mountain lion, Billy suffers a great loss that affects him for the rest of his life. I would read this book to my class as a read-aloud during free time.
