Description

Excellent for students able to read anything you hand them, but whom you'd like to protect from the grittier "realities of life" that more-advanced books often deal with.

Features books at fifth grade reading level, but with content gentle enough for young readers. Your children will adventure in New York City, discover the secrets of a Civil War soldier, travel with a whale who is unable to speak to other whales, continue to develop a love of books and reading, and much more.

Select this as part of your Sonlight C or Sonlight B+C program.

Includes the Grade 5 Readers Schedule/Study Guide.

Use Sonlight's Reading Assessment to see if this is the right level for your child.

The Squire's Tale (5R04)

Growing up an orphan in an isolated cottage in the woods, young Terence never expected much adventure. But upon the arrival of Gawain, his life takes a surprising turn. Gawain is destined to become one of the most famous knights of the Round Table. Terence becomes Gawain's squire and leaves his secluded life for one of adventure in King Arthur's court. As he adjusts to his new life, he proves to be not only an able squire but also a keen observer of the absurdities around him. His duties take him on a quest with Gawain and on a journey of his own, to solve the mystery of his parentage. Filled with rapier-sharp wit, jousting jocularity, and chuckleheaded knights, this is King Arthur's court as never before experienced. Part of the Squire's Tales series.

Pay Attention, Carter Jones (5R05)

Lovely, lovely new book by one of my favorite authors. When the estranged grandfather dies, he leaves an endowment: pay for his butler, and the purple Bentley, to go to the daughter-in-law and four remaining children, while she is short-handed due to her husband's deployment. Significant family trauma, but the butler says the right things. There is also the wildly improbable aspect of cricket (the game) taking over at the middle school. Charming.

Once Upon a Marigold (5R06)

If Dad had only warned him about all that mind-boggling love stuff, maybe things wouldn't be such a mess. Although then, maybe, Princess Marigold would be dead. But Christian wasn't warned. And now he's fallen for the princess ...

Twelve-year-old Catherine just wants a normal life. Which is near impossible when you have a brother with autism and a family that revolves around his disability.

The Wondrous World of Violet Barnaby (5R15)

Eighteen months after a girl's mother died of cancer, her dad quickly marries the meanest teacher in school, and Violet acquires two step-siblings. She finds a hidden letter from her mom, with a list of things to do to celebrate Christmas. Good look at family, and how to deal with emotions and hurt feelings and pain and forgiveness. The climax is one of the most moving things I've read in quite a while. Really, really enjoyed it. Set in a warmer climate, where snow for Christmas is probably not going to happen.
