Okay. We know what you’re thinking. Classics? Eww! Except you probably have to or will have to read some for school. So, you’ve come to the right place. We promise to include as few books featuring dead dogs as possible!
Stone Fox by John Reynolds Gardiner- A dead dog, but still. It is really good! Grades 3-5.
The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Gouge- An engrossing mystery about a girl trying to uncover the truth behind an old legend. Grades 4-6.
The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare- Kit has journeyed to the U.S. and befriends someone who is said to be a witch. Grades 4+.
White Fang by Jack London- A great book about a half dog half wolf. It may be a bit violent. I read it in 3rd grade, but maybe better for Grades 4-5.
