My sixth grader loves to read and I'm so thankful for that. She reads so much, however, that it's hard for me to preview enough books for her.
I haven't always been super picky about what I allow her to read. I would just pick up whatever looked fun from the library. It wasn't until serious issues with a poor attitude and angry outbursts (which I traced to a series of books she was reading) that I started to preview what she's allowed to read.
I learned about The Good & the Beautiful Reading List a couple of years ago and it has been such a blessing in our home. The list contains more than 650 books that have been previewed for inappropriate content and then categorized by reading level.
What are your reading list choices for sixth grade? If you haven't made your choices yet, or are looking for a list of clean and wholesome books with high literary and educational value, then consider purchasing The Good & the Beautiful Book List.
