Georgia (wait4utopia) My daughter loves books that are funny, such as the Jack Russell Dog Detective books, but the problem is that she needs to try to stay on track with her AR stuff for school...I read a lot at her age, but had different interests and reading levels...does anyone know of any great funny books that are fairly well known and not brand new? For instance she easily reads the American Girl books...and is also liking the Indie books (but the Indie books are not AR)...I do allow her to read whatever she wants to AFTER she completes her AR reading goals for the week.

Any ideas?

Thanks!


Flinkybits | 6 comments Judie Moody books by McDonald. Amber Brown books by Danziger. That would be a place to start. Both are series'. Andrew Clements books are hilarious and just right. Especially, No Talking. All the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary.
