Literature for 6th Graders
The Books 6th Grade list includes most of the best books for young adults in 6th grade. This site provides links to free book resources and links to purchase many of the books. Most books, newspapers, and magazines are written between a 4th-7th grade level, so you’ll find that this list, while fairly extensive, could be far, far longer. Every attempt was made to inclusively list only the best teacher-selected titles. These are the books teachers use most. Over two hundred teachers were polled in order to make the list of the best books for young adults.
If you don’t find what you’re looking for on this list, you might try the book list for 5th or 7th grade. The difference, in terms of ability level, among books of these levels is minimal, and I would highly encourage you to look at all of these lists. Also, book levels are based on reading difficulty, not content or plot. Many books are highly readable but challenging in different ways, typically incorporating symbolism and other important literary devices. Again, it is entirely appropriate to read books above or below the reading level you are targeting if the book challenges the reader in other ways, perhaps in provocative way.
Book levels are based on reading difficulty, not content or plot. Many books are highly readable but challenging in different ways, typically incorporating symbolism and other important literary devices. It is entirely appropriate to read books above or below the reading level you are targeting if the book challenges the reader in other ways, perhaps in a provocative way. For example, The Catcher in the Rye is certainly a push for fourth grade in terms of content. Perhaps pushing it to seventh or eighth grade may be an option. As you can see, limiting a child to a book, because of a book list or the child's age, is a mistake. Grade-level lists are only guides and careful attention must be taken in order to select proper reading material based on ability and interest rather than a grade recommendation.
