Looking for ideas on books and series of books for my son who is eight and in second grade. He loves the Junie B. Jones books. Thanks

You can start him out with the first Harry potter book it's pretty easy and challenging as well to get him to push himself slightly. Also Freak the Mighty is an amazing book for young boys. One more book series would be The Hardy Boys.

 I hope these books are a good level for your son. I was the quiet kid in school that read all the time so reading levels didnt apply to me so i sometimes forget what is actually age appropriate lol.

The Magic Treehouse- they are typically around 30 pages long. Be sure you invest in the Fact Trackers as well as they actually give the history behind the book. 

Harry Potter- My dd will be 8 in November and she has read the first 2 books and is in chapter 5 or 6 now in the third book. The books are geared for 5th-6th graders, so they will challenge him more than the Treehouse books will and they are long. The 2nd book alone is 18 chapters and over 300 pages. My niece is 11 and in book 6 now, so my 7 year old is catching up to her quickly. LOL 

The Diary of A Wimpy Kid series ( my niece loved it, but my dd has no interest)

Captain Underpants series ( same as above)
