    - The Magic Tree House series
    - The Disney Fairy chapter books
    - Little House on the Prairie series
    - Diary of a Wimpy Kid series (she borrows them from her big brother. LOL!)
    - Fancy Nancy picture books and early reader books
    - The Puppy Place chapter books
    - Amelia Bedelia books
    - My Weird School series

    She also likes books tied to her favorite games, TV shows, etc. Things like the Club Penguin books, Phineas and Ferb and Pokemon stories.
