    Does anyone have any suggestions for books on a 4th grade level that a boy might enjoy? My neighbor asked for my advice but since I teach 2nd I'm not sure. Thanks for the help!

    Any Joey Pigza book I think they'd enjoy! My kids also loved Captain Underpants, Frindle, and Holes.

    The boys in my class like Goosebumps, Star Wars, and all the non-fiction stuff like Volcanoes, Hurricanes, Earthquakes, etc.

    "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" by Judy Blume is good. So is "Fourth Grade Rats." (Although I forget the author of that one.)

    A to Z Mysteries by Ron Roy
    Goosebumps by R.L. Stine
    Series of Unfortunate Events Lemony Snicket

    CSI Crime Files by Jeremy Brown (4 minute forensic mysteries) - these are awesome!
