I feel compelled to add my opinion! Since there is a boy involved, I can't recommend the Betsy Tacy books. I would add that I think it would be nice to alternate the Ramona books with the Henry books, where a boy is the main protagonist. The Mouse and the Motorcycle trilogy would also be enjoyed by children that age.

IIRC The Mouse and the Motorcycle is great.
There is a lot of stupids, shut ups, etc. in Beverly Cleary books. Just saying.

Im currently doing The return of the plant that ate dirty socks. There are about six or seven books in that series.

Despite being a big Cleary fan, I am not a huge mouse fan. I reread the Henry series not long ago and can't recall "stupids" or "shut ups". Perhaps when Ramona was having a temper tantrum? Neither Mrs. Huggins nor Mrs. Quimby would have tolerated such language. I am much more of a Beezus and a Henry fan myself. In the Henry books, Ramona is more likely to get her "comeuppance"--her bad behavior is not rewarded.

DD loved "A Series of Unfortunate Events". I read all of the characters in different voices, and made it very dramatic. She couldn't get enough of it.

I actually didn't read it exactly at bedtime, but after dinner. Once she had her bath and was in pajamas, we'd chat a little bit about her day, and then say Shema.

I did too (and the Netflix series is fantastic!) but I think it may be a little scary for 6/7yo, especially just before bed

A series of Unfortunate Events is really scary. I probably still wouldn't read it (I'm a scary story baby Confused ) The Magic Tree House series and the Boxcar Children series are the best. Start with the first Boxcar Children book, they are very engaging and written very well.
