I just finished my first round of conferences, and I had a lot of requests for book ideas for parents to give their children. A few parents wanted their child to kinda get away from reading just Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, but I'm not sure what to suggest. I don't know many titles that would be at the students' reading levels, but that would also not offend their ability or interests. Anyone have any ideas? Another general interest in my class is the fantasy genre: Harry Potter, Fablehaven, Lightening Thief, etc. Again, some of the kids that are interested in these titles aren't quite at that reading level.
