My 1st grade daugther Alex reads at close to a 4th grade level. Here is our problem -- the books containing subject matter appropriate for a 6 year old are typically written at a 2.0-3.0 level. Series like Judy Moody, Clementine, and Katie Kazoo are fun for Alex but she flies through them in less than two sittings -- she is reading about 4 of these chapter books a week.
A friend just loaned us Book 1 in the Dragon Keepers series (leveled 3.2), which thus far seems like a decent option. Do you have any other suggestions on books that would be appropriately challenging and interesting for her without crossing the lines of first-grade "decorum"?
Thanks so much!
