    Easy Reading Chapter Books (Attention stupid question)

    OK - Here is my problem-o: I am taking my Children's Lit class in the Winter but our prof gave us a list to read before the quarter starts. We are to read and 5 Easy Reading Chapter Books......On to my question, what do you consider Easy Reading Chapter Books?? I was thinking along the lines of Junie B. Jones?? Is that right?? If anyone has any suggestions...please share. The only catch is the book has to be published from 1998 or newer.

    Thanks a ton!
    Ash

    I would consider Junie B. Jones, The Magic Treehouse series, the Mr. Putter and Tabby books all easy reading chapter books.

    Other chapter books I would consider easy would be Jigsaw Jones Mysteries and Magic School bus chapter books. :)

    Horrible Harry, Bailey School Kids series, Animals Ark, E.B. White books, Cam Jansen mysteries, Sarah Plain and Tall, Pony Pals series, maybe even A Wrinkle in Time. You could search www.Carolhurst.com by grade level.

    The Marvin Redpost series are also pretty easy. Lots of my second graders read those chapter books as well as those already listed.

    My kids are second graders- the books mentioned are all pretty much level "L" in the Fountas/Pinnell leveling (except Mr. Putter) . L is the benchmark for the END of second grade. While most of my kids reach or surpass that benchmark, level 'L' is not easy for beginning readers. I would consider EASY Chapter books to be things like the 'Little Bill' series, Poppleton, Mr Putter and Tabby, Nate the Great (a little harder...)

    PS - Junie B Jones cn be difficult for kids as she doesn't speak correctly so word decoding can be tricky.

    All good books and most are considered end of 2nd grade reading level. The Magic Tree House books are a level M. Another I like is the BoxCar Children series (I think level N or O)..
