    Magic Tree House was my favorite. I would read one book per day.

    If you have voracious readers who will get through books in record time, pick up Animorphs series on eBay or something. Tons of books, good reads!

    Little House on the Prairie series and Anne of Green Gables may fall into that reading level range depending on your child.

    I have been reading the Anna hibiscus books with my daughter, and we both love them. Probably more like 3rd grade level or slightly younger, but they’re really great.

    I hadn't thought about it until I saw it, but Miss Piggle-Wiggle is amazing! Catherine (up above) had an excellent suggestion there! I enjoyed a few Goosebumps books but when they became popular I was more into (like REALLY into) the Fear Street books which are from the same author put for a slightly older crowd. I loved a Wrinkle in Time although I can see why not all kids will (movie was a major disappointment in comparison) and speaking of movies that weren't as amazing as the books, Twilight series for a MUCH older crowd! My step kids liked Zoe in Wonderland, a few of the Heidi Hecklebeck series (definitely great for this age range and we stopped cuz the now middle schooler isnt as interested). She DOES like the books by Raina Telgemeier (Sisters, Smile, Ghosts) they're like comic books but super thick. The younger girl is in 4th grade so closer to what you're interested in, and she likes shorter chapter books like Snowy the Surprise Puppy, The American Girl books- NOT the ones about the fictional girls, but the educational ones like The Care and Keeping of You for her age range and TCAKOY2 for the older girl. They also have cool craft books, quiz books, etc. The "Bedtime Math: A Fun Excuse To Stay Up Late" books are awesome and she usually HATES math lol. Other than that she absolutely adores these super old books I have that have no dates the were printed, I have no clue HOW old they actually are, but they have original versions of popular stories, like before Disney took out the "scary" parts, it also has Greek myths and classics with wonderful morals- if anyone is truly interested I can upload photos of them and give you as much info as possible but they're everything we could expect from the stories we want to tell our children, not just to entertain, but to educate, warn, and shape them into the kind of adults that the much older generations made sure to do and unfortunately the last several have dropped the ball on! I'm sorry this was so long but I'm also wishing I could add more, I feel so passionate about reading and in our fast paced world nobody has time for it anymore and it's so sad! What a great topic when the only books some of us have time for ARE the books we read to our children, the people we love more than ourselves, and therefore make time for even if we have to suffer in the process (well most of us- unfortunately their mother doesn't but my wish is for every parent to love their child this deeply, and where there is a void, a step parent, grandparent, or other guardian steps in!). So bravo and thank you, I'm going to check some of these out too!
