5th Grade Book Club
Join the 5th Grade Book Club and earn a certificate for reading seven of the best classic books for fifth graders. Of course, there is no charge to join and you will enjoy some of the best books ever written.
Great Books for Great Readers
Join our heroes and heroines as they journey to far places, flee from danger, settle in untamed wildnernesses, fight legendary villains, and fight so that good will triump over evil.
How It Works
We have listed our pick of the very best books by grade level. Students who read seven of the books on the list can earn the Classical Childrens Book 3rd Grade Book Club Award.
The process is simply:
- The students choose the seven books they wish to read from the grade level lists.
- After reading the seven books, they go to the corresponding page for their grade level.
- The students fill in the form with their name (as they want it to appear on their certificate), the seven books they read, and their email address.
- The 5th Grade Book Club certificate will be emailed to the child.
- We WILL NOT keep your email for any other use by ourselves or others.
- If you desire to stay in contact with us, we invite you to subscribe to our quarterly report. But we do NOT use the childrens book club to build or maintain an email list.
