What do your 2nd-4th graders read?

My son is 8 and loves to read. We've been through all of The Hardy Boys, Boxcar Children, Captain Underpants, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Goosebumps and few others. He needs something new and our one used bookstore is pretty much out of anything that he hasn't already read. He's invaded my book shelves now and while there are worse things than James Patterson, I'd rather he stick to more age appropriate things. Sooo, what are your kids reading?

Oh, and he hates Junie B. Jones.

 Left Behind for kids-Stephen king, James Patterson-I dont censor what they read because they can only imagine what they want with reading.

My six year old isn't a fan of Junie B. Either.

What about the Magic Tree House or A to Z mysteries.

I would just take him to Barnes and Nobles and let him browse. They seperate all their books by grade levels.

Geronimo and Thea Stilton, Harry Potter, Beast Quest, Animorphs, Magic Tree House, animal encyclopedia type books, Rainbow Magic, Judy Moody etc. She's 8 but on a high school reading level so sometimes it's a bit of a struggle to find something that's age appropriate and keeps her interest. We're reading HP together as I know the more you read the more mature it gets.

I wouldn't really care, but some of the murder scenes are kind of detailed and he gets creeped out. As in...he has to make sure all the doors are locked, windows closed, dog in his room and still ends up sleeping on my floor.

My 8 yr old is 1/2 way through the Harry Potter series. He simply loves HP.
