classroom library books for below grade level readers

Hi,
My third grade class of 18 is the most academically challenged group I have had. They are also quite young with 2 children who are still 7 and eight students who have recently turned 8. NWEA testing and running records show 4 children meet the benchmark in reading. Most concerning is 12 students scored below the 25th percentile. Yikes! Only 3 of these students are receiving SpEd services.

There is obviously much to do, but this post is regarding advice on expanding my classroom library to include interesting yet appropriately leveled books for all of my students.

I am looking for recommendations for chapter books for third graders at DRA levels 10-24 (F&P F-L.) I have had huge success in the past with struggling readers when we find a series or author of interest. Ebay has been a great source of used book lots for great prices. I love the excitement in my classroom as we await the arrival of these books.

Thanks in advance for your help.
