Based on replies from all of you wonderful people, I did not express myself  
well enough.  I love the answers and will compile a hit soon, but I feel I  
missed the mark in my request.  My concern are books like Bridge to  Teribithia, 
and Yankee Girl-Rodman.  Both of these books have themes I most  2nd or 3rd 
graders (at least at my school) would not understand.  Both are  somewhat 
controversial in that parents might choose to explain death or  segregation to 
their own children.  So how do, monitor these?  Do I as  someone suggested go 
through the collection and mark all the ones I think are  too mature for 2nd and 
3rd grade?  Or do I just them self select.   Some students still are quite good 
at that.    Thank you for all  your input and I will post a hit soon.
