COLONIAL SCHOOL — Ever wonder what elementary students like to read in their spare time? You might be surprised to find out all the different types of books kids like to read.
Some kids like to read mysteries, while others like to read realistic fiction or ghost stories. Many students also like to read nonfiction books.
Olivia Fenick (4C), said, “I am reading ‘School Detective.’ I got it at Barnes and Noble. I love mystery books, and I thought it sounded like a good book to read.”
Julia Wall (3D) is reading “The Dork Diaries.” She said she “started reading this book two or three months ago. I got this book at Colonial School’s book fair. I’m reading this book because my friend recommended it, and she said it was so good.”
Here is what other students said about what they were reading:
- “I’m reading ‘The Diary of a Wimpy Kid,’” said Holly Tsang (3L). “I got it for a present. I started reading it one month ago. I’m reading it because I read some of the other books and thought it was a good book, too.”
- “‘Little House in the Big Woods’ is a good book that I’m reading,” said Annika Halvorson (1C). “I started the book one month ago when I got it as a present. I read this book for fun, and sometimes I do it for homework”
- “I am reading ‘White Wolf,’” said Max Evans (1A). “I started reading this book a week ago. I got it at the library. I really thought it was good.”
