These Are The 5 Most Popular Books Among School-Aged Kids


When it comes to what students are choosing to read, a few books reign over all the others.

A new study out Thursday from Renaissance Learning outlines the most popular fiction books among students in first - 12th grade for the 2012 - 2013 school year. The study's conclusions are based on information from a database that tracked the independent reading habits of 9.8 million students from 31,195 schools around the country.

The list contains some old favorites (will Dr. Seuss ever fall out of favor?), but there are also some more recent powerhouses. We've compiled the favorites into the list below.

Are these the books your kids are reading? Let us know in the comments section.
