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.

The Giver

The Giver - Lois Lowry, Ron Rifkin

Grade Level: 3-5, 6-8

Lexile Level: 760L

The Giver is an amazing journey about a boy named Jonas and an enormous challenge he is faced with. Jonas is born different in a world where everyone is kept the same and he must face all the responsibilities that come with this difference. His experience changes his life forever. I would use this book as a read-aloud for my students during free time.
