Alrighty, here is the third installment of JCN readers book suggestions. It all started with a plea and then a list of summer reads for mom (me), books that a 9 year old boy would read and now today…
Books that a 7 year old boy will like!
I have added a few comments below to books we have read or books I read with Ryan. I will be adding comments as time goes on! These are listed by most suggested at the top.
Thanks again for all your help.
What books would interest a 2nd grade boy:
Magic Treehouse series, by Mary Pope Osborne — I love these books, but Ryan was not interested. I think this series will work much better with Reid who lives in his imagination.
Encyclopedia Brown, by Donald J. Sobol
Captain Underpants, by Dav Pikey
Junie B. Jones series, by Barbara Park
The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis
The Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein
Frog & Toad, by Arnold Lobel — All of us loved this book and saw the children’s play based on it…super fun.
Anything by Beverly Cleary
Flat Stanley, by Jeff Brown — If you are a relative, you may have already found Flat Stanley in your mailbox. Also a play that we attended…yay!
Where the Sidewalk Ends, by Shel Silverstein
The Light in the Attic, by Shel Silverstein
Frindle, by Andrew Clements
Anything by Ronald Dahl
SkippyJon Jones, by Judy Schachner
Sideways Stories from Wayside School, by Louis Sachar, Salmon
Suzie Bitner Was Afraid of the Drain, by Barbara R. Vance
How to Train Your Dragon series, by Cressida Cowell — Reid is currently reading some of the easy readers under this title. He loves them.
