Books for children in Years 4, 5 and 6

We have been running a Book Club for years 4, 5 and 6 for at least 4 years now and have read some fantastic and some not-so-fantastic books… 

We often get asked for book recommendations for children in this age group – so here is a list of books that have been popular with the children at The Story Room Book Club. The books highlighted in gold were the children’s absolute favourites leading them to read other books by the same author.  We also discuss poems, stories and books, and make reading suggestions for the children, in all of our creative writing workshops too.
