Clip to ScrapBook #1

Good evening, I am looking for chapter books for that would be good for my granddaughter who is now in second grade. She loves to read and is fairly fluent when reading aloud.

As a retired elementary upper elementary ELA teacher, I am afraid that I would select books that would be too difficult for her.

Thanks you for any recommendations.

Magic Tree House Series
Frog and Toad
Boxcar Children
Owl Diaries-a favorite for my daughter

I'd have her read a few pages before buying them.

The Pain and the Great One by Judy Blume is a great book.

Emily Jenkins has a series of 3 books that are wonderful and are best enjoyed as read-alouds.
Toys Go Out, Toy Dance Party, and Toys Come Home.

Nate the Great (There are many titles.)

Young Cam Jansen (There are two levels. The Young Cam Jansen books work well for second graders. The other set is more for third graders.)

I agree with Young Cam Jansen, Nate the Great, Magic Treehouse and Frog and Toad. The other title suggestions are excellent books but I feel they are for more advanced readers.

Junie B. Jones series is also an option. Freckle Juice is a good one for second graders. Tornado by Betsy Byers is also a good one that is not from a series. It is not about a tornado, the dog is named Tornado.

There is a series with puppies and kittens that my 2nd graders loved. The author is Holly Webb, I think.

Ivy and Bean is another series they enjoy along with many of the suggestions above.
