  • Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is big with my 10 year old and anything Star Wars

  • Diary of a Wimpy Kid is good, so are the books by Matt Christopher (he writes books about sports). It all depends on what your child is into. Take a trip with your son to Barnes and Noble or Borders and let him look at the 100's of books that they have. My son loves books about history, wars, etc. He also likes the Star Wars series of books (there are a couple of them). The problem that I have with my son is that he is almost 13 and reads at a higher level, so the appropriateness of some books are not right for his age. Ask his teacher or a librarian.

  • The Lightening Thief by Rick Roirdan. It is the first book in a series and both my kids and I love them. They are making a movie about it too, which helped my kids get interested

  • Here is a website from the author James Patterson. It has tons of books according to age, from birth on up. I recieved the info from my son's English teacher when I asked her for ideas on books for my son who hates reading.

    It is amazing, check it out!!

  • Try the chronicles of narnia :) there is 7 books total in the series. i own all 7 and they are amazing. i plan to keep them for my kids. they are amazing while enhancing imagination but also encourages good :) plus its a good thing to read seeing that they are now making movies out of them. there is a certain order the books are in but it is different from its chronological order. (and there is another bonus if you are christian. :) The stories are christian stories but turned using talking animals in a magical world that only appears when you believe in it.. The head lion, Aslan portrays JEsus/God [if you watch the lion the witch and the wardrobe you will notice this when he gives himself as sacrifice to save one of the kids from the evil white witch who is suppose to portray evil/satan. But these messages arent noticed unless pointed out or previously taught. I will comment again with the book list.

    -The Silver Chair (book6)
