Reading Ladders

At South Jordan Middle we read A LOT. In order to help my students choose books well, I have created many lists of books I love – all separated by subject and arranged from the easier reading levels to the hardest.

Follow the links below to learn more about each list and see the books I recommend. Because these are specifically for SJMS, I have included the CALL NUMBER for each book and the author’s names or series name.
