I have a 7 yr old who is just starting to read chapter books and he thinks it is pretty cool to get and read them.  Can anyone make any good suggestions of series that would be good for that age?

How about Boxcar Children or The Hardy Boys? These are two I was recommended just now to suggest! :)

Other suggestions would be The Animal Ark Series, The A-Z Series, Ready Freddy, Santa Paws, and possibly Diary of a Wimpy Kid (don't know age bracket on this one, though) and Dear Dumb Diary.

A series that I saw on someone's list, but didn't know the appropriate age for reading level was Puppy Patrol.  Does anyone know anything about that one?

I think I've seen that one too, but I'm not sure the age bracket on it either...but it sounds like a cute series! :)

My son is 7 and can't get enough of the chapter books for his age in the series called

"Beast Quest " by Adam Blade

There are a bunch of them too!  It's about wizards, beasts, swords, shields, and even redemption.

He also likes Box Car Children.

my dd likes karen little sister books, and the pony pals series. we have read a couple puppy patrol but i think they are just a little bit old for her, i think maybe in a year she will love them though. she also loves animal ark books. hope this helps! oh and we have been reading the magic tree house books together.
