My sister and I were talking about books her daughter (2nd grade) and my son (3rd) are really loving and then I thought, I should just do a blog post about them because then I’ll remember them myself! So please tune in at the bottom and tell me what you guys are loving reading in your household at these ages.
I’m using my amazon links so that means if you click through and buy anything I get a sliver. Just so you know.
F A M I L Y
Mercy Watson. This pig is a family favorite and her adventures are ha-larious.
Great Pie Robbery and other mysteries. A HUGE family favorite.
Millie-Molly-Mandy. Girl adventure power tales from the 1920’s.
C H A P T E R
Pony Scouts. This early reader (level 2) is kinda a chapter series but it’s also just a really fun one for any horse lovers out there. I can’t find a boxed set so I just am contented to buy them one-off used via ‘zon.
Magic Treehouse, of course.
Freddy the Pig. It’s hilarious and my son wolfed it down. There are tons of them so also grabbing them used.
Narnia. Got a used box set and it’s so sweet.
The Penderwicks. Adventure, kids, all good stuff.
American Adventures. He got the whole set as a gift from my family and every single one was riveting and he loved these. He’s a historical fiction guy.
The Borrowers. These little people are fabulous.
Boxcar Children. We keep getting more and more from our local used bookstore. They’re a fast read and not too scary for the little kids to hear aloud, too. Sweet sibling love and mystery and morals to the story.
Doctor DoLittle. FUNNNYYY like my kid keeps giggling aloud.
Encyclopedia Brown series. HE LOVES THESE.
Redwall/Mossflower Series. Mice, battle, epic.
Tales from Deckawoo Drive. A higher reading level with the Mercy Watson characters–just so so great!!

Six Swans. It’s gorgeous and heartbreaking and redemptive all at once.
The Woodcutter’s Coat. Hilarious and fast moving with a great story and illustrations.
Okay I ran outta steam. Your turn!
