Reading Lists For Our Gifted Readers and Additional Parent Resources:

Here are several sources for reading lists that are appropriate for our gifted students and our very high readers.  You will still want to look through the lists carefully for books that are appropriate for your child because you know your child the best.

 

GT World Reading List

Parents of gifted and talented children are faced with many unusual challenges. With many of our children very early readers, the question is often asked "What books are good for my 4 or 5 year old who's already reading chapter books?" or "My fourth grader would rather read adult books, but I'm not comfortable with the topics. Help?" These lists are a summary of the reading recommendations from members of our GT-Families mailing list - parents and children - to answer these tricky reading list questions for our gifted children.
