  1. Thank you!! This is amazing! I’m always at a loss at the library with my 9 year old who devours books!

  2. Thank you for this post!
    I got my kids into reading with the first few Harry Potters and was looking for other choices- great options!
    (I can’t believe I forgot about Gordon Korman!)
    Beverly Cleary’s and the Littles set are also great.
