I have a nephew that is in 3rd grade and just absolutely hates to read.  My sister would like him to read as he needs to for school, but she can't seem to find any books that he likes.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

My little boy is also in 3rd grade and hates to read is not the phrase for him...but he does read the Horrible Harry books with no problems. Also the Scooby Doo Mysteries   ....Hope this helps...

Happy Reading Love

My son went through a spell that he didnt want to read and I switched to reading with him at night for a litle while it became such a habit and he would beg for more time.  He really liked dinosaurs for as long as I can remember so we read 'Dinotopia' we read the big book but he really enjoyed the chapter books and he got to where he was reading them himself during the day without me. My son is 17 and he reads on and off but he does always seem to go back to it. Good Luck!

The Captain Underpants series appeals to every little boy I've known.  The reading level may be easy for him, depending on how well he reads, but they are lots of fun.  I had a reluctant reader who LOVED these books in 3rd grade.  good luck

I'd recommend Scooby Doo and Ready Freddy (this is on a 2 or 3rd grade level, I think).  I edited this because I think Diary of a Wimpy Kid is 4th Grade level.
