Easy Chapter Books Your Children Will Enjoy

Clementine, by Sara Pennypacker, has been a favorite of the students in grades 3-5 at my school.  I used it as a read-aloud last year with all of my 3rd grade classes.  I enjoyed reading it as much as they enjoyed listening to Clementine’s antics.  Clementine is in 3rd grade and has established an “interesting” relationship with her principal. Let’s say a revolving door relationship!  No matter what Clementine does it inevitably lands her in hot water. The kids and I found ourselves laughing out loud at her shenanigans. I think you will too!

Pennypacker has also written two more books about Clementine and her adventures: The Talented Clementine and Clementine’s Letter.

Stink: The Incredible Shrinking Boy, by Megan McDonald,  is the first book in the Stink series by McDonald. Stink is first mentioned in the Judy Moody series. He is Judy’s younger brother. In his debut book, Stink is afraid he is shrinking because he used to be three feet, seven and three quarters tall each time Judy measures him.  Now as Judy measures him, it appears he is shrinking! Since Judy is older, do you suppose it’s an older sibling mean trick?? He has many adventures throughout the book which kids can relate to. I loved the illustrations as well. This makes an excellent choice for a read-aloud for students in grades 2-4.  The other titles in the series are: Stink and the Incredible Super-Galactic Jawbreaker, Stink and the World’s Worst Super-Stinky Sneakers, Judy Moody and Stink: The Holly Joliday and Stink and the Great Guinea Pig Express.

Happy Reading!
