Check out our New Book Ideas page on Bookopolis. Students pick a Genre and a Grade Level range and get 16 book ideas recommended by other young readers and book obsessed educators.

Have advanced readers? Check out the Advanced/ Mature genre in each grade level for appropriate books that are more challenging. These lists will be updated twice a month so come back often to peruse.

We have lots of other book lists on Bookopolis to explore including: Award WinnersReaders Also Liked, and New Releases.


Use BOOKQUEST, an interactive tool designed for how students think about books.  Let students play around this tool and pick different paths like “Magical Thick Books about Wizards” or “Graphic Novels about History.”
