My daughter is 5 and an advanced reader. We've blown through almost every book in our local library that is on her reading level.

She loves Fancy Nancy, Spider Man, Transformers, Legos, Eloise, and similar characters/books/series.

Can you recommend any Level 1 or Level 2 books she could try out? Or any more advanced books I can read to her? We read at least a half hour every day, so we're running out of ideas.

Thanks!

Have you started chapter books? The magic treehouse, flat Stanley, etc... ? I stay away from Junie b Jones because I dislike the awful grammar, but some kids enjoy them!

Try chapter books like the above person mentioned! If you ask your child's teacher, they should be able to give you ideas. My child's teacher has been really helpful in that department! If they don't know, they could ask a 1st grade teacher for recommendations.

 I help in dd's school library when a 1st gr class is in there. A lot of them check out from these series: Magic Tree House, Junie B. Jones, Rainbow Magic, Bad Kitty, Ivy and Bean, Geronimo Stilton, Captain Underpants, Ricky Ricotta.

An advanced reader in kindergarten should be ready for beginning chapter books.  Magic Treehouse and Junie B. Jones were favorites at that age in my house.

 I just changed the grammar when I read the books. With my second daughter, she liked the bad grammar b/c it adds humor. Like when kids say psketti for spaghetti... that is kind of how the author wrote the book. I understood it better the second time I read the Junie B Jones books. I also downloaded the audiobook versions from my local library. My kids liked reading along to the audiobook, and listening to the books in the dark as they went to sleep. I also downloaded Magic Tree House.
