I love reading. And I love to share this passion with my daughter. During babyhood and toddlerhood, what better way to begin it with is to read board books and I can Read books. But now that she is a graduate of all those, I began looking for books that are longer and more appropriate for her age.
So far these are the books that she read and enjoyed:
1. Ivy and Bean Book Series
Ivy and Bean are seven year old bestfriends and classmates. Although they have two different personalities, they get along greatly. They live in Pancake Court together with their families and colorful friends.
This 11-book series has black and white illusyrations. It contained their adventures including designing a science project that will alleviate global warming, creating a newspaper for their neighborhood, become a detective on a mystery in Pancake Court, and much much more.
2. Judy Moody Book Series
Judy Moody is an 8 year old girl who lives with a brother Stink and their parents. She has group friends and classmates who also happen to be her partners in crime.
Like Ivy and Bean, this 10-book series has also illustrations. It tells of Judy Moody’s stories as she pretend to be a journalist, become a good samaritan at a children’s hospital, explore historical city with her family, and so much more.
2. Charlotte’s Web
I was able to read this book when I was in grade 5 and I have loved the story. I’m glad that Yesha enjoyed reading it as much as I did.
The novel is about a helpful spider, named Charlotte, who saved Wilbur, a pig, from being slaughtered. With the help of other barn animals they were able to accomplish their goal.
Charlotte’s Web is heart warming novel that your children might really enjoy and a stort that they will never forget.
4. Stuart Little Chapter Book
Stuart Little is a short, ilkustrated chapter book which has the same author as Charlotte’s web. It is about a mouse, named Stuart, who was adopted by the Little Family.
Stuart’s adventures include helping his adopted family with house chores, meetinf friends in boat sailing, and saving a bird friens, Margalo, among others.
Let your children be entertained by this witty and adventurous mouse.
5. Harry Potter Book Series
The whole world knows about Harry Potter. Although I have never finished a series of Harry Potter, I hope that my daughter will like it. As she is turning 9 years old already and likes fantasy stories, I supposed that she might appreciate Harry’s adventures with wizarding. As for now, she is only halfway through the first series, The Sorcerer’s Stone. I can’t wait for her to finish it, watch the first movie, and for her to see the book character’s come to life.
6. Phoebe and Her Unicorn
Girls nowadays are very into unicorns. Although Phoebe and Her Unicorn is not a book series, but a comic series, Yesha enjoyed it nonetheless. She appreciated the colorful illustrations especially that she loves illustrating and drawing herself.
