Rose (ka-tet-rose) | 37 comments I'm looking for a book that I can read to my little sis. I think she's too young for Harry Potter because I've tried reading it to her before and she couldn't focus. Are there any recommendations?

Kathy | 905 comments I would suggest a Rainbow Magic book such as this http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31.... I read one when I was about her age, and I know a lot of young girls read these books as well.

You could try Alice In Wonderland, Black Beauty, The Black Stallion, The Secret Garden, and A Little Princess. I know these are older classic children books, but I don't know any modern books that are good for that age.

You could try the Nancy Drew series. I used to love them when I was little.

I think when I was that age maybe a little older I gat hook on the American Girl series. The stories tell about girls living in time periods of America, such as Civil War to the 1970s. They also include dolls of the characters that come with clothes and assertieries.

Samantha (sammgasmic) | 41 comments Try the tales of Beatle the Bard. I live the stories and it would be a nice gateway book for Harry Potter ;P

I would try Roald Dahl, the twits or the witches. BFG, Danny champion of the world.
All his books generally delight children I've read them too.
Also Enid Blyton, adventures of the wishing chair or the faraway tree. Also the Joey story books. Children can generally only concentrate for small periods of time at that age so a shorter story might help keep her hooked. The wishing chair is broken into adventures, so you could read one a time.
