Looking for ideas for books for Dylan to read. He is going into 2nd but reads 3rd grade level. And is devouring our library's supply. They rearranged their shelves and cleaned out a TON of books. With summer here, the shelves have been especially empty. Even so he has read pretty much all the Magic School Bus, Cam Jansen, Judy Moody and Stink books, Junie B. Jones, working on Nancy Drew, some Clementine, Ivy and Bean, Nate the Great, still working on Magic Tree house books, and many more fiction and nonfiction books and comics. I won't let him read Diary of a Wimpy Kid yet although he does on poptropica.

What are some other series, authors, or random books appropriate for a young 6 almost 7 yr old? Thanks

What about the classic Judy Blume books, like Superfudge?

Try fear street. Its a good fun series, thrilling without being scary. My fifth grader was an early reader also. He started this series at your sons age and still enjoys rereading them today.

Matt Christopher writes books fiction books about different sports. Is your son into non fiction at all? that may be an area that regardless of his level, he may never exhaust at the library.

the percy jackson may be too much for him right now, but keep them in mind for the future! there are the 39 clues, hardy boys and the cs lewis books that he may enjoy in a year or two, or you could read those to him!

My boys love almost any graphic novel! they read a lot of pokemon and bionicles books.

congratulations on having a great reader!!!

My DD LOVES Diary of a Whimpy kid series  (she's read like 3)  I think though otherwise I'm not much of a help b/c we are on to Judy Blume Series now and that might be boring for your son

how about the Non fiction series of "who was _____?"   its a bit tough reading but it is grade level for 3rd grade  my DD read Who was Abe Lincoln?"  and "Who was George Washington?"  and is currently ordereing who was Rosa Parks?   the series has 25 books on historical people and the 2 we've read were AWSOME

My kids really enjoyed the Bailey school kids series  (so did i )   My son was also a big fan of the Bone books. They are more like comic meets book but he really enjoyed them.  maybe try some classics  like Charlottes web or alice in wonderland.

Oh yes charlottes web! My son and o read it this year ( he was in 2nd grade) and he LOVED it. I was also thinking Shel Silverstein books, kind of like poems for kids. Matt Christopher is also great!
