Need book ideas for own DD

Dd age 9 still loves for me to read aloud to her. She’s read a ton of books, both independently and with me. I’m running out of read aloud ideas for me to read to her. We’ve done:
-Ramona series
-Indian in the Cupboard
-Little House books
-Charlottes Web
-Homer Price
-Half Magic et al
-most of Kate DiCamillo’s books
-Who Was? Biography books


And she’s read a ton on her own. Looking for some books similar to those above (“classic” in a sense) and nothing too scary (even though she could read at that level she’s not ready emotionally for Harry Potter)

The “Wizard of Oz” series. Most people don’t realize there are 14 books in the series. I read them to my kids at that age and they still talk about them.

“The Secret Garden”
“Boxcar Children” series
Books by Patricia Reilly Giff
“Pippi Longstocking”

One of the favorites of my fourth grade was The Forgotten Door. It's one I like a lot also. They were desperate to write the author and ask him to write a sequel. Alas, he was no longer living. I love that book and have the e-book. The printed book and the e-book are available on Amazon.

Not classics, but enjoyable

A. Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library.
B. Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow

Neither one is particularly scary.

Try looking on Amazon. Look for a title you have enjoyed in the past. Then check out the other titles they recommend below the information about that book. If a title looks interesting, you can go to that page to read a summary and other people's opinions.


Isn't it nice of Amazon to make suggestions?

Ella Enchanted
The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E Frankweiler
The Akimbo books by Alexander McCall Smith
Babe the Gallant Pig
The Five Children and It- by E. Nesbit- There are a bunch by her. Exciting but not scary. These are really classic (old) but great!

You have some great suggestions. I would add, “All of a Kind Family” there is a sequel I think “All of a Kind Family Downtown”. Not sure if she would be ready for, “Little Women.” No clue about, “Little men” as I never read it, but I think I was about that age when I received as a gift.

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane isn't a classic but it would be great for you to read together.

What about The Velveteen Rabbit?
