    Default Good Chapter Books for 6-8 year olds

    Hi everyone,
    I'm looking for recommendations for good chapter books for 6-8 year olds- I want to read for about 10 minutes per day while my kiddos eat their lunch. I don't want any Dahl books- I read quite a few last year and so my Gr 2's will be highly familiar with them, and well, I want them to have a taste of wide variety of books!

    We have quite a few boys in our double grade this year- (nearly 50 kiddos between us) and quite a few from LSE backgrounds, if that makes a difference.

    Thanks!

    I remember reading Michael Morpurgo's "Butterfly Lion" to a group of 7-8 year olds and they loved it. Also what about Flat Stanley those books were always popular, I can't remember the age range though.

    How about all those treehouse books? Are they too old?

    Our kids like Zac Power, Geronimo Stilton and those footy ones...

    Good thread. DS1 is about to go into grade 1 this year and is ready for chapter books, but I don't want the content to be too difficult to understand.

    Enid Blyton books are good, as are C.S Lewis books

    I second the Enid Blyton books. They are a fave of my DD along with Roald Dahl. The faraway tree etc.

    To read to them? We're currently reading Harry Potter, and DS is completely enthralled. Also reading the Faraway Tree series.
    Reading alone I suggest The Bad Guys and Weir Do.

    It's more advanced, but DS loves Goosebumps.
