Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library My daughter read this book first in 3rd grade and loved it.
The Thief Lord This was a must for us as we visited Venice this summer. 🙂
Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin Both my kids loved this book so my daughter asked me to get the other one in the series. See below.
Girl’s Best Friend (A Maggie Brooklyn Mystery)
The following titles are graphic novels because my kids discovered a few they really liked so I checked out several series from our local library.
The Stonekeeper (graphic novel) For a list of books in the Amulet series click here. My kids were actually almost fighting over these books (who is going to read it first) and were very sad that they have to wait for the 7th book until it comes out next year.
Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute: Lunch Lady #1 This is a graphic novel both my kids fell in love with. They read the whole series and every time I brought a new book from the library they fought over who was going to read it first. For the list of books in this series click here.
Cardboard (graphic novel)
The Hostile Hospital (A Series of Unfortunate Events #8) She read the first 7 books last year and took a break there, so now she resumed the series.
The Carnivorous Carnival (A Series of Unfortunate Events # 9)
The Slippery Slope (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book #10). She also read the rest of the books in the series (I believe there are 13).
Wonder They are reading this book in school.
Flashback Four #1: The Lincoln Project The first book of a new series–she wants to read the next one when it comes out.
Books I read to her or she listened to
Rufus M. Although this is a very nice book, it is older and the style is different from the books that come out now. My son (7) loved it but my daughter (9) thought it was just okay. I’d probably agree with her. I don’t know how many kids her age would read it on their own. It is probably a good read-aloud.
