How to find books for gifted learners?

I am often asked by parents of academically gifted students how to find quality literature for gifted readers. Many times the content and issues surrounding characters in higher level books are not appropriate for the age of the gifted reader. For example, a third grader reading on an eighth grade level does not need to read about love relationships that might be addressed in young adult literature.

Here are a few reading lists for gifted readers:

I like this list because it also gives recommended grade levels: http://www.bertiekingore.com/gtchildreninlit.htm

Feel free to comment on any of your child’s favorite books. I love getting feedback about good books that academically gifted children enjoy.
