Books for 3rd Grade Boys

This is my fourth post in a series based on books for different grade levels. Today I am writing about books for 3rd grade boys. The three previous posts were about books for 2nd Graders, 1st Graders, and Kingergarteners.

My son reads completely differently than my daughters, and I'm not sure if its the grade or the gender as I don't remember my two oldest daughters reading like this. My son is in an exploratory stage with his reading. He reads a lot of different books, and if he doesn't like one, he doesn't finish it. On the other hand, he tends to explore a lot of different types of books: sports, mysteries, humor, and even some non-fiction.

Some of the series he has been reading include, In the Land of the Lawn Weenies series by David Lubar, the Goosebumps series and the Ghosts of Fear Street series by R L Stine, Encyclopedia Brown series by Donald Sobol, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney. See all of these and more and my page Books for 3rd Graders.
