Hi there! I read Judy Blume books LONG, LONG ago so I've forgotten if they are appropriate for a second grader. I have a student who bought me the "Fudge" series for my classroom library. These books are on her level as she is an advanced reader and I wanted to make sure she would be able to read them. While I am asking this question, what other books do you suggest for higher-level readers that are also appropriate? I have students in second grade reading between 4th-6th grade levels. Thus far I've given them Number the Stars, The Giver, Island of the Blue Dolphins, and Because of Winn-Dixie. Right now they are basically "rotating" through these books, but I'll need a new group soon. Any suggestions? Thanks!
