I am looking for ideas of books and series for my daughter 10-11 years old to read, especially over the summer. Could be varying levels - like slightly below her reading level and a little higher as well.
She loved Harry Potter and also things like magic tree house series, boxcar children, also Bakers Dozen & BY Times...She didn't take to reading right away but now seems to be getting into it much more after falling in love with the Harry Potter books and reading them and I want to use this opportunity to give her more great books! Could be Jewish or Secular books, appropriate, individual books or series.
Thank you!!!!
