Chapter Book Recommendations for 5th Graders

Each year my husband and I create a reading list for our Dinomite, specific to his abilities and interests.  Dinomite loves all things related to animals, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and has shown a very intense interest in history this year.

Though Dinomite is turning eleven this month, his reading abilities far surpass his grade level.  Finding appropriate books that will take more than a day for him to read can be a challenge, because he loves to read so much.

His reading list is considered part of our homeschool curriculum for the year.  Each day we have a time set aside for reading so that he can be successful completing it.  Dinomite also enjoys reading in his free time, so finishing a book is rarely an issue.

We are so excited about this year's list. Dinomite has already finished three books since the beginning of December and is begging for more, meanwhile reading his favorite a second time.

If you're looking for some fabulous chapter book recommendations for 5th graders in your life, be sure to check out the list below!  You will not be disappointed, especially if your child has similar interests to Dinomite.
