When the summer started I had to round up some early chapter books that would appeal to my son who would be heading into grade 4 but behind in his reading. He loves stories and books but reading itself has not progressed at the speed in which one would expect for a kid who loves stories and books. And so we continue to search for books that appeal to him and that are at his reading level. Here is a list of early chapter books that we have discovered this summer. I would say some of the books may be of more interest to a boy but most of them I think girls would like as well, as there are both male and female characters in each.
