mild Wednesday-KIDS TAKE OVER!!!

My kids are taking over today with a selection of books they want to recommend for younger readers.  I think they’ve picked some great books EVERY grade 1-4 kid “Otter” be reading:

Frightfully Friendly Ghosties, Phantom Pirates by Daren King

So cute, so funny!  Another entry in the hilarious series about friendly, polite ghosties and their adventures-this time it’s pirates.  I always read these in my fake British accent which just makes it funnier, to me, the kids don’t seem to like it all that much!  This was listed as 4th grade level but my 5th grader is still a fan.  It is available in paperback and for the Kindle.


Snoop Troop It Came From Beneath The Playground by Kirk Scroggs

This is the first in a new series about 4th grade detective Logan.  The mystery is finding out how toys are disappearing from the playground.  Scroggs is the author of several great kid series including Tales of a Sixth Grade Muppet-if your kids liked that series, they should enjoy the Snoop Troop.  Grades 1-4 for this one and it’s available today in hardcover.
Leroy Ninker Saddles Up by Kate DiCamillo

You know who Kate DiCamillo is-she wrote Because of Winn Dixie and The Tale of Despereaux.  We have loved her books forever and in this book she spins-off her wonderful Mercy Watson series to give us another tale set on Deckawoo Drive.  Fans of sweet cowboy stories will LOVE this book.

Leroy works at the drive-in theater and dreams of being a cowboy. Every cowboy needs a horse and when he meets one named Maybelline that eats spaghetti!, things couldn’t be more perfect, or could they?  This is a lovely lovely little book, Chris Van Dusen is one of the best illustrators around and I can’t even tell you how well the illustrations match and enhance the story.  We all adored this little book and can’t wait to see what Leroy and the gang get up to in the next book in this series. This is for ages 6-9 and was just released on August 26th.


What do you think?  Something here that your little one will love to read?  We hope so because every kid “Otter” be reading!  Tomorrow will be more fun & good books-see you then!!
