Book Recommendations for 4th Grade Girls

Happy Monday, Friends!

We had the BEST weekend!  I know the crazy spring season full of ALL THE SPORTS AND ACTIVITIES will be here before we know it so I’m trying to enjoy the relaxing moments we have now.  I hope you guys are READY for the week.  Last night I got our life in order so the Slaughters are SET.  Who am I kidding?  We’ll be good today and then a big ole mess by Tuesday.  😉

In the meantime, let’s talk BOOKS!

Ebby Lee loves reading so after discovering how much I loved my KINDLE-I decided to get Ebby Lee one for Christmas.  She was so excited about receiving this gift and packing it for our road trip was nice and easy.

I hit up Instagram to ask YOU for book recommendations for fourth-grade girls.  You guys hooked us up with a huge list of recommendations.  Lots of you asked me to pass on this list, so here we go.

First, I want to say-I haven’t read all of these books so I apologize if there’s anything remotely inappropriate.  I’m just compiling the giant list you guys sent me.  There were a few small things people mentioned that needed discussing so I included that with each book.  

And, I’m sure our kiddos are all on different reading levels so some of these might be super easy for your fourth grader or a little on the difficult side.  Either way-I hope you find something for your daughter, grand daughter, niece, or super special girl in your life.
