Beginnings of a Book List for Third Grade

Medieval: Working so much on Lucy's booklist and I suddenly remembered that on our shelves were a number of picture books on the Middle Ages. Keeps it neat if Snowy reads some too...

Anno's Medieval World by Mitsumasa Anno
A Medieval Feast by Aliki
Medieval Life by John Guy
Warfare in the Middle Ages by Fiona MacDonald
Joan of Arc by Diane Stanley
Adam of the Road by Elizabeth Janet Gray
A Door in the Wall by Margeurite de Angeli

Sadly, the library doesn't have David Macauley's Castle, so I might just need to buy a copy, but it does have two books that might be worth borrowing - Medieval Adventure Castle Crafts and Why Castles are Castle Shaped.


Ludo and the Star Horse by Mary Stewart
A Dog on Barkham Street by Mary Stolz
Eagle's Egg by Rosemary Sutcliff
Rabbit Hill by Robert Lawson ( I love this book!)
Tom's Midnight Garden by Phillipa Pearce ( Snowy's favourite read-aloud from 2011 was A Dog So Small by this same author.)
The Magic of Reality by Richard Dawkins
Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan
The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander   ( this was on last year's list and we never got around to it. If I leave it much later, he'll have outgrown them.)
The Family Under the Bridge by Natalie Savage Carlson
And I haven't given up on getting him to listen to the Children of Green Knowe! by Lucy M Boston.
