If you don't have time to read all the books that your kids may have to read during class, consider reading book reviews for parents about these books. After all, once kids learn to read well, a book’s reading level is less important than whether the content inside is developmentally appropriate.

Each new school year typically comes complete with a bookshelf’s worth of required reading. Depending on where you live, some titles are suggested by the state or school district. Others are selected by individual schools or teachers.

As a service to parents, Focus on the Family has reviewed many of the most-read classroom books. After all, once kids learn to read well, a book’s reading level is less important than whether the content inside is developmentally appropriate. Here are just a few of the titles we’ve reviewed:

Younger elementary classroom books

Older elementary classroom books

Middle school classroom books

High school classroom books

This list certainly isn’t all-inclusive; you can find more reviews at PluggedIn.com/book-reviews. And Thriving Family doesn’t review only classroom books. Our index contains plenty of popular youth titles that we add to weekly.

We want to hear from you!

To help us better serve parents, we’d like to know which books your children are studying or teachers are reading to your children’s classes. You can send the titles, the name of your state and your child’s grade level to [email protected]. Though we may not be able to create a review in time to help you, your insights will help us expand our index of reviews for books that are currently being used in the classroom.

Understand How to Respect and Love your Son Well

Why doesn’t my son listen to me? Have you ever asked that question? The truth is, how you see your son and talk to him has a significant effect on how he thinks and acts. That’s why we want to help you. In fact, we’ve created a free five-part video series called “Recognizing Your Son’s Need for Respect” that will help you understand how showing respect, rather than shaming and badgering, will serve to motivate and guide your son.
