Hi 5th class!
Below, I have written a list of books/series of books that you might like to explore over the summer months. Reading over the summer will keep that mind of yours sharp, and it can be wonderful to get lost in a good book! The books below include new books (just released), and not-so-new books (what my brothers and I used to read when we were younger!).
Some of these books might be a little scary or sad, so it would be a very good idea to ask a parent/guardian if they think the book is suitable for you. Just like movies, books can be scary or might not be appropriate for your age. Always check with a parent or guardian, before you want to read something that might give you a fright! I have put a little red star beside the books that you should double-check with a parent/guardian before reading, as they might make you jump!
