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.
While not all these books are from when I was young, they all have an old fashioned innocent feel. In fact, my number one pick, Ling and Ting: Not Exactly the Same! by Grace Lin reminds me so much of my favorite Little Bear series in that it has a tight story line that is both silly and sweet. Easy readers are a rite of passage for both kids and parents. I remember searching for easy readers that were not mind numbingly boring as both parent and child are attached at the hip during this period of literacy.
