Second Grade Reading List

Standard questions often get standard answers. In my house, “Mom, I’m bored! What should I do?” is almost always met with, ‘READ!” It may be a simple answer, but let’s face it– before the answer completely leaves my lips I’m already anticipating, “But what should I read?” As a mom, I walk a fine line between just being happy that they read anything, and wanting to make sure they are reading quality material that will inspire them to become bookworms. It’s the literary equivalent of wanting them to “read” their vegetables in a world full of candy. Second-graders need their eyes and ears filled to capture their attention. This reading list includes award-winning authors and beautiful illustrations to satisfy both of your dietary needs.
