Reading Lists

Choosing Excellent Literary Works

Reid School teachers expect students to be reading good quality literature both in class and at home.  The lists found below came from various sources but all demonstrate excellent literary works for students of all ages to read.  Some of these lists indicate the grade level of the book, short story, or poems.

At Home Reading List

A letter was sent home before the start of the school year with a list of books each child should read at home during the school year.  Linked below are the letters with lists for each grade level from Kindergarten to Eighth Grade.

Timeless Classics

Posted on our website in the past as a Summer Reading List, this list is still usefull both during the school year and during the summer break.  This list was compiled by the National Endowment for the Humanities with additions by Reid School.  Reading levels for many books are marked in bold next to the title.

Newbery Medal Books

The Newbery Medal was named for eighteenth-century British bookseller John Newbery.  It is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children.  Reid School recognizes that this award is only given to excellent literary works.

100 Best Nonfiction Books

This list was compiled by Modern Library as part of their 100 Best series of book lists.  Reid School expects that 25% of students’ at-home reading will be nonfiction.

100 Best Nonfiction Books of the 20th Century

There may be a lot of overlap between these lists.  However, these lists should provide enough reading material for years.  Parents, it would be a good idea for you to read these books as well.  Even if you have read them in the past, I guarantee you will appreciate them differently as an adult.
