Books for my 5 year old nephew
Old 11-13-2018, 06:20 PM

Iím looking to get some books for my nephew - he has a ton of picture books, so Iíd like to move into some early chapter books that he could read with an adult at first and move into reading by himself. He is very sensitive and easily scared, so the subject matter needs to appropriate for a young 5 year old.

Any suggestions - especially series that I could add on to in the future?

Junie B. Jones. I love her. Nate the Great (although a little challenging), and Frog and Toad.

I also recommend Junie B. Jones. The stories are so funny and several teach children a nice lesson at the end.

I'm putting a vote in for some non-fiction easy readers.
There are tons of them.

If you want to browse for ideas, go to the Scholastic website and check out the Book Club offerings.
You don't have to buy any of them, but it will give you an idea of what is available and reading levels.

These are a little bit easier reading but both DS and DD loved the Piggie and Elephant books by Mo Willems
DS liked the Captain Awesome series

Another vote for Poppleton, Henry and Mudge, and Mr. Putter and Tabby. We loved and read those books so much that some of the phrases turn up in our everyday conversations--for example, Henry's description of rainy weather as "wet yuck." Of the three, I liked the Poppleton series the best, but I think they may be out of print--not sure. There are also fewer Poppleton books than the others. But you gotta love Poppleton, Hudson, Cherry Sue and the other characters!
