Third Grade Books That Are Fun and Adventurous

Sharing is caring!

Finding some good third grade books can be tricky. At this age, kids may not enjoy reading which is why it is important to find a series or book that is interesting. If they can find a book they like, it can help them discover their love for reading.

Books that are funny, tend to mimic real-life experiences or scenarios, and those with positive messages are always a great idea.

Books are also a great way to create your own writing prompts. We always have my son read a chapter or a few pages, depending on how long the book is, and then write a summary of what he has read. It has helped him so much with his reading, writing, and comprehension skills.

How To Help Your 3rd Grader Get Interested in Reading

Let them read whatever they want. If they read something that interests them, they will be more apt to continue reading.

Magazines, comics, picture books, etc. These are all great ways to get them started. See what they are interested in and are curious about. Once you find something that perks their interest, you can expand from there.
