Best books to read for 4th graders

Here is a long list of the best chapter books for fourth grade 9-year old boys and girls that I have reviewed and recommend. Roller Girl shows the struggles of friendship and finding your place in the world as Astrid works hard to become a better roller derby skater, reconcile her ending friendship with her best friend, and develop a new one. Your kids will love this new action-packed fantasy adventure series from the talented Bruce Hale. Fairy tales come alive when Alex and Conner (brother and sister) find themselves in the fairy tale book given to them by their grandmother.
The princes in the fairy tales aren’t as famous as their princesses but in this story it’s all about them! Stuck in a museum with her sister and father who is working on a sword exhibit, Orphelia’s curiosity leads her to a locked room where a boy has been trapped for thousands of years. You’ll fall in love with this magical story about a lonely boy whose beloved grandfather faces a life-ending illness. Honestly, I could care less about chickens — unless they have magic — which the chickens in this story do!! Crenshaw is the new book from the author of The One and Only Ivan, Katherine Applegate, and it’s another amazing story dealing with poverty.
My 10-year-old loves these stories about an angel named Aria who is earning her wings by helping girls who are struggling in some way. I think the Big Nate comics are even better than the novels — they are just so stinking funny! I loved this fast-paced adventure series about a mad scientists who creates a hybrid crocodile-dinosaur-bird killer creature to stop visitors from entering the Everglades. Unusual because she can only sleep during the day, orphan Carly befriends a musical rat and with her new friend from school, Green, discovers the reason the owls are stealing all the rats — a curse that brought the terrible griddlebeast. Jacque is devastated to discover that his happy life with his sister is not real, that he is actually imaginary! Raina shares her growing up stories with humor and amazing art in these three popular books. Filled with cartoon illustrations, this early chapter book series highlights the bravery of a group of friends (and siblings) who will save the world from zombies. This summer the Penderwick sisters have a wonderful surprise: a holiday on the grounds of a beautiful estate called Arundel.
Sunny’s summer vacation is spending time with her grandfather at his retirement home. I LOVE this fantastically developed historical fiction story for several reasons – the girl-centric history is really interesting (and empowering), the characters are so well-developed you feel as if you know them, and the plot is a grand adventure! Young and brave Creel wants nothing more than to own her own seamstress shop but in her pursuit of this dream, she encounters and befriends a few dragons which will change the course of her life. We recently listened to the series on audio book which was even more fun to hear it read in a British accent.


He’s horrified to discover that someone in the capital city is using the rare plant he and his cousin found to forcefully control animals. It will take months to prove the video is falsified and by then Jackson will have missed the robot contest due to his punishment.
Which means that Warren is the bellhop, valet, groundskeeper, and errand boy for very few hotel guests in the once popular hotel.
In this first book, that comes out in July 2016, Carlos and Benny notice strange behaviors from their favorite teacher.
Kicked out of their castles, these princes turn from bumbling idiots into heroes and save their kingdoms with hilarity and adventure! Micah’s grandfather and Micah hope the Lightbender in the Circus Mirandus who owes the grandfather a miracle, will be able to help. We follow along as she adjusts to living in the White House, having a bodyguard, and experiences being the First Daughter. Siblings Nick and Tesla are shipped off to live with their mad-scientist Uncle Newt for the summer while their parents are . Ben and Pearl meet two dragons in this adventure, break a kazillion rules, and save a life. It’s a fun historical fiction adventure (and mystery) set in ancient Rome about a young boy named Lucius whose father is accused of a crime. Talk about it with your kids — it’s interesting to see how much they pick up of the deeper meanings!
Soon they are busy discovering the summertime magic of Arundel’s sprawling gardens, treasure-filled attic, tame rabbits, and the cook who makes the best gingerbread in Massachusetts. When the circus travels to the seaside home of a Maharaja, Lizzie’s visions help her figure out who stole from him and if the Ghost Ship is real.
Not only that, whoever is doing this is removing baby animals from their mothers and training a bear to be a killer.
Jackson and his friends are determined to prove their innocence but it won’t be easy. Wyatt’s crush, Suzanna, helps the friends make a plan, and as you can imagine, disaster and hilarity strike. Except, against her father’s wishes, Kymera befriends a townsperson and learns conflicting information.
With a missive to the Lightbender, Micah soon discovers the magical circus his grandfather once loved so much.
The book is written as letters from a girl named Sophie, who is newly living at the farm of her dead great-uncle Jim.
After having lost their home and living in their van for 3 months, the family is now about to lose their apartment.
Gabby’s brother is hospitalized indefinitely and her mom is totally focused on her brother.


When the family loses everything, the oldest brother decides to be a gladiator — which is equivalent to slave status and quite frankly, a good way to die young. But the best discovery of all is Jeffrey Tifton, son of Arundel’s owner, who quickly proves to be the perfect companion for their adventures. When Ben and Pearl Petal discover a veterinarian for imaginary creatures, instead of helping the dragon, they accidentally let a sasquatch escape. It’s a good idea to start with book one since the stories are told in a specific order with details from previous stories. Basically the world is in danger of running out of fossil fuels, and to save it, a group of the smartest and most skilled 12-year old kids must travel through space in order to get the materials that will save Earth. When Owen catches his classmate Bethany sneaking out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with a chocolate face, he has the brilliant idea of going into his favorite book and saving the hero. When Raffa discovers who is behind it, he, his friend, and the animals he saves must escape from the city and the horrible truth. Warren needs allies and ideas about where to search so he can discover the treasure first and save his family’s hotel.
Soccer team member (among other things), Alex Morgan, it’s a realistic story of life, friendship, and playing soccer. I totally loved this book and know your kids (especially those who like humor) will as well.
She writes to her dead abuelita, her dead great-uncle Jim, and Agnes of the Extraordinary Chickens catalog. The books always are about a young boy trying to survive the historically important, life-changing event. The story follows the kids competing for a place on the team, and their travel to the first planet for the first thing they need — a tooth from an enormous dinosaur. In this first adventure, Mary and Ada learn about another historical figure who invented hypnotism and solve the case of a stolen heirloom. In this particular story, Devin’s beloved Kicks team are separated in the winter soccer league.
Specifically the chickens — starting with the first one she discovers wandering around. The Girl in the Torch is a touching middle-grade historical fiction novel that follows an orphaned girls journey to America and struggle to stay.
Follow Owen and Bethany as their adventure becomes dangerous and scary and is it fiction or real? For awhile she hides out in the Statue of Liberty, then the watchman finds her and lets her stay at his boarding house.
