What are some great books for grade schoolers?
It's always exciting to see your child start diving into books on their own. What books has your grade schooler particularly enjoyed?
Easy ones: Amelia Bedelia
Frog and Toad
Junie B. Jones
As a child, I remember I loved mystery and ghost stories, which were often advanced, which helped me quickly propel my reading to higher levels.

The Sister's Grimm series is AMAZING! All fairy tale characters are real and live in Ferry Port Landing I read the first book when I took a children's lit class and loved it so much I had to read the rest of the books even though I had a lot of other reading to do. I'm sure there's others that I'm just not thinking of but this is a definite must read.
My daughter really liked My Father's Dragon as a Read-Aloud in Kindergarten, and she read it to herself in first grade. Since then, she's enjoyed the Boxcar Children series, A Series of Unfortunate Events, the Narnia series, and the Warriors. Now a 5th grader, she can't seem to put down the Warriors books.
The Frog and Toad books, Junie B Jones, Chester the Raccoon (the Kissing Hand book and others by the same author), Curious George series and National Geographic Kids books on animals. Scholastic Books offer plenty of nice affordable titles (some at $3.99 paperbacks) and I have found TONS of Scholastic books at Library sales, thrift shops, etc. in good condition for as little as 25 cents. My kids are Kindergarten and Second Grade respectively. The older one is a boy who now likes to read outloud sometimes and help his sister.
My daughter loves to read. She satrted out reading the Junie B Jones series in first grade, then moved on to Magic Tree House, A to Z Mysteries, Katie Kazoo Switcharoo, Dairy of a Whimpy Kid and the Warriors.
She is in six grade now and reads 5+ books a week. She just finished reading The Hunger Games series for the second time... in four days! She still loves the Warriors series and has read them again and again. I can't keep her in books. She checks them out from school and the public library in addition to us buying books and finding as many free books as I can for the Kindle.
