Your child insist on chapter books but isn’t ready for Newbery Award authors? Sick of low quality series about weird schools or fairies? Here are suggestions beyond the obvious ones. Mom and teacher approved.
Dragons and aliens and dinosaurs, oh my! And for girls, there are interesting slightly mischieveous girls to meet as well as cousins who are really sweet. Short chapter book series can often have repetitive plot lines about nothing or language that is neither rich nor interesting. There is something special about each of these book series for the child AND the adult reading along.
My middle child highly recommends the Ghostville Elementary series by Marcia T. Jones. She says this is an easier version of Harry Potter that isn’t as scary for grades K-3. (K will need parents to read to them).
