Do you want more fiction or non fiction books.

Right now my high readers are reading Magic Tree House (a great combo of both fiction and non-fiction).

My high readers are reading "Marvin Redpost...Kidnapped at birth" Level L
and then will read "Marvin Redpost...Lost in my teachers house" (I think that is the title).

Magic Tree House books are sometimes hard to follow unless you go in order. Some Characters are only introduced in the earlier books (Atleast that is what I have found).

Also, Black Lagoon chapter books, Ready Freddy chapter books

Hope that helps...Would love to read about more books that work for our high kids, I have a 7th grade reader and 4 5th grader readers, content is HARD to find appropriate for first graders.

I am more looking for some good ideas for readers who are in grade one, not yet interested in chapter books, and reading at a level L+. Fiction or non-fiction is fine. Mostly I am looking for books that are appropraite content for 6 year olds, that are not too long or daunting that they don't want to read it, but are at a level that still challanges them.

Thanks everyone!

If you go to Scholastic.com and use the Book Wizard you can do a Leveled Search. You input the interest level as well as reading level, and can add type of book, theme, etc. This might give you a good list of books to use.

I put in interest level grade 1, reading level L and looked for non-chapter books. A few I found are Marc Brown's Arthur books; Caves and Caverns by Gail Gibbons; Axle Annie by Pulver; The Ugly Vegetables, Grace Lin; Swish!, Michael D. Chesworth; Chicken Little, Steven Kellogg; Amelia Bedelia Goes Camping, Parrish; and The Little Buggers: Insect & Spider Poems by Lewis. There were a lot more.

For that child reading at grade 7 in first grade -- I was that child. I mostly self-selected. My parents felt that if I read over my understanding, I'd just put the book down, or not "get it". They were right. Scholastic lists a number of books for interest level grade 1 reading level 6.5-7.8. They include The Marshmallow Incident, Barrett; Monday's Troll, Prelutsky; Redwoods, Chin; and George Washington: A Picture Book by Giblin.

Check out the Book Wizard. It's a bit addictive!
