    Does anyone know a series similar to Junie B. Jones? My students LOVE her, and I would like to find something similar that I could read out loud to the students.

    Thanks!

    Amber Brown is good for slightly older students (2-5th grade).

    I love Clementine - I think there are 3 books now. Also Ivy and Bean.

    My daughter loved Junie B and Ramona. She also currently loves Magic Treehouse but I think that is a little higher reading level.

    I hate to say it, because I loved Ramona books myself, but I read a couple last year and the language is above the heads of an average first grader.

    Everyone mentioned the books I thought of (Clementine, Ramona....though I will add Judy Blume's Fudge series); however, I think most of these are high for kinder.

    Ivy & Bean as mentioned before. The A-Z mysteries are fun quick stories and they make them for both primary and intermediate students.

    When my daughter was in first grade, she loved it when her teacher read the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books. Now that she is in 3rd grade, she reads them herself!
    We read together Sarah, Plain and Tall, The Little House books, the Ramona books, the Fudge books, Judy Moody, and Katie Kazoo, Switcheroo.
