Many of these titles are listed on the site as spanning multiple grades.  You might like to look at what Scholastic has listed for the grade levels because your student may be interested in the book even if he or she is not in the grade level I have it listed for.  (Please note – on the Scholastic site Ways to Make Sunshine is listed for grades K-3.  This is incorrect.  It is for grades 2-5).
Also, many of the authors on my list have multiple titles on the Scholastic site.  Feel free to search the authors’ names to see what other titles they have available.
