Classic Literature Reading For Middle School Students

Influence your middle school student’s reading choices this year by talking up the classic literature that you read as a kid.

Contrary to what your kids may think, classics by authors such as Mark Twain, Louisa May Alcott and Ernest Hemingway will capture their attention with interesting characters and meaningful plots.

For kids who like adventure, suggest “The Adventures of Huck Finn” which follows Huck as he floats down the Mississippi facing danger, or Hemingway’s “Old Man and the Sea” which tells the story of a fisherman who battles the sea and sharks to land a giant marlin.

Alcott’s “Little Women” follows the four girls of the March family as they experience love, adolescence and adulthood. Each girl has a unique personality that readers will enjoy discovering.

More than anything, sharing a discussion about the books you’ve both read helps you bond with your busy student.
