Reading Books for Fritz and Cameron

I used the same process to choose Fritz’s reading books for next year as I did for this school year. He ended up with 8 books for next school year and they were actually all the books with passages used in Writing With Ease 3 that have a Kindle book available.

  • Homer Price by Robert McCloskey
  • The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis
  • The Moffats by Eleanor Estes
  • Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
  • The Black Stallion by Walter Farley
  • King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table by Roger Lancelyn Green
  • Bambi: A Life in the Woods by Felix Salten
  • The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling

Cameron’s book needed to have Kindle + Audible combinations so he can use the immersion reading feature on his Fire (the poetry he’ll read himself on paper). I’m going to have him read 30-60 minutes a day and then discuss what he read with me. Because of this, I have no idea if this list will last him the whole school year or not or be too many books. He’ll just start reading and see how far he gets (and Gone With the Wind is iffy given how long it is). A couple of the books Fritz will be reading, too.
