We just finished a book called Lemonade Wars. Cute book!

The Narnia Chronicles

Pearl the Magical Unicorn is great. Lovely, funny and engaging. Plus there are several different Pearl stories you can buy. My daughter is eight but has been reading them since she was four. You can pick them up for under $10 at Kmart.

My daughter loves the Humphrey books. They’re about a hamster that’s a school pet.

Louis Sachar books … Wayside school, Holes!

BFG, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach…


The “good dog” series. It’s suspenseful and so cute. My 8 year old reads them but would be appropriate for you to read to your 5 year old. It’s about a dog that got adopted and takes and adventures with his new family. They live on a farm. Super cute stories

Junie B. Jones books are awsome

The Land of Stories series is absolutely amazing. I read them to my daughter when she was 4 and she is now 6 and still talks about them. She is also reading a grade above.

Junie B Jones. Very age appropriate and great teaching tool.


I think it kind of depends on you and your kid to be honest. We’re not really restrictive here…so for us it would be Harry Potter…Percy Jackson…how to train your dragon…little house on the prairie…(all things I had for myself) or whatever my kid would sit and listen to. We’ve tried…goosebumps…Junie b. Bad guys. Minecraft. ECT too.

My parents read me the Narnia series as a child and I have read them to mine. There are 9 books, we are reading them for a 3rd time through my kids upbringing/ bedtime stories and they are phenomenal. Perfect for her age and older. I am a firm believer these books helped my kids read at a high reading level.


Ralph the mouse, flat Stanley, little house series, Junie B…

My mom used to read super fudge to me as a kid

Idk if they still make these books, but my mom used to read chicken soup for the soul books to us. Each “chapter” is a different story.


I also like book on tape, or even you can look on line too.

Anne of Green Gables

My littles loved the magic tree house serious.

Fancy Nancy, Junie B. Jones, Amelia Bedelia, Magic Tree House, (MTH, maybe for age 6 and up), there’s a bunch I could recommend, but it depends on your child’s personality and preferences.

The Maggie series is good. I don’t remember what the actual titles are but my daughter loved them.

My daughter (6) and me are five books into Narnia, she understands it all perfectly

The Land of Stories is really good!

For something wholesome - Anne of Green Gables. Sweet innocent fun. I have also read Little Women with my daughter. She owners the diary of a Wimpy kid collection and love Harry Potter. She is 12 and has loved books since she was tiny.
