Book to read to Year 3 suggestions.

    It's almost the last week of the school year and my brain has turned to mush. I'd like to read a book to my Year 3 class over the course of the week purely for enjoyment (well, also to encourage them to keep up their own reading over the holidays) but I can't think of what.

    Any suggestions? I seem to have lost all decision-making capabilities.

    Roald Dahl.

    Yep- always Roald Dahl. You would easily get through The Twits in a week.

    George's Marvellous Medicine is always a hit with Y3

    Please NOT Roald Dahl they can recite them in their sleep! Introduce them to authors they might not know ... Anthony Horowitz, Jonny Duddle, Brandon Sanderson, A F Harrold etc etc there are so many more great children's authors

    I agree with Msz. You don't have to finish the book as this may encourage them to get it from the library or buy it. Perhaps parents may even read it to them if it is too difficult for them. There are so many great books out there. Look on the web site Love Reading for Kids.

    Thanks for the suggestions (the Love Reading For Kids site is great). I'd like something a bit different which the children might not have come across. I'll keep looking.

    I learned today that The Twits was the most widely read book among primary aged children last year, so if there was ever a reason to read something else to them, I think this is it.
