Rise of the Earth Dragon, Book 1 of Dragon Masters Series by Tracey West
Reading aloud with a parent or starting chapter books on their own, this a great series of adventure, magic, and of course dragons!

My Weird School Series,  by Dan Gutman
Beginner chapter books that are laugh out loud funny.

Magic Tree House books by Mary Pope Osborne.
Great way to start chapter books with a younger crowd. Good choice to read along with an adult to start and then branch to reading to self.  Teaches about history and events in a fun way!







Charlotte’s Web by E.B.White
Great classic story to introduce kids to chapter books. Great to read together.








Box Car Children books by Gertrude Chandler.
Classic series, which is fun to start off reading with an adult.  Tells the story of family struggle and how they always stick together.
