I have been following this thread with interest as I also have a child reading at a US 2nd grade level/3rd grade level. Unfortunately/ fortunately she is 30 months old! My hubby is from UK, and we recentlydiscovered the Lynley Dodd books- great new vocab, all about a cute set of animal friends, no aged concepts like school dilemmas! VERY cute. The Hairy Maclary and Slinky Malinki books are absolute favorites....also, Julia Donaldson books...the Gruffalo, Room on the Broom, etc... Not the chapter book set but VERY fun to read and still challenging!
Can't wait to follow thread, would love more ideas...

Second graders vary a lot on their reading level, but here are some possible suggestions: Franny K. Stein, Junie B. Jones, Magic Tree House, Geronimo Stilton, Cam Jansen, the Pee Wee Scouts. If she likes fairies, kids like the rainbow fairies, although they aren't great literature. There's always Captain Underpants!

I'd suggest reading aloud some books that are at or just above her reading level. Then she may be inspired to pick them up and read them.

It's not as high a level as Inkheart, but I think you might enjoy reading Pippi Longstocking and Mrs. Piggle Wiggle to her.

If she really is disinterested in reading, perhaps the _Ivy and Bean_ series is worth a look. The two girls are mischievous and fun. Each book has some element of "information" - like the talk of Mary Anning in _Ivy and Bean: Break the Fossil Record_. My 7-year-old granddaughter can almost read the books on her own, but enjoys my reading them to her.

Look at Katie Woo or Princess Poses or Kylie Jean books?

A great one is "Count On Henry Counting." It has a Shel Silverstein type of a vibe. I found it on Amazon as an ebook.

Hello Hada,

Try Journeys of Butterfly Chloe by Gerdine Dalambert. It is a great book.
