jenn&charles Posted October 25, 2012 Share Posted October 25, 2012 Otter has always been a super picky reader. It took FOREVER to get him the least bit interested in chapter books (fiction/novels). He's more of a non-fiction type of kid and he still likes picture books. I'm trying to find the next chapter book hit(s) for him. If anyone has any suggestions, pleeeeeeeeeeease let me know! Here's a list of books he's read to give you kind of an idea of what's worked out and what's been a flop. Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan - HUGE hit Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan - HUGE hit He's currently reading the Red Pyramid series by Rick Riordan and that's working out too. I'd say Riordan is his fave author so far. He loves his books so much he actually bought the Percy Jackson series with some b-day money (wha? Otter buying books on his own? Yeah, he liked them that much.) Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins- He tolerated the first book (he liked the part about the games) and couldn't get into the 2nd one. Overlander series by Suzanne Collins- He got about 3 chapters into the first book and didn't like it. Left Behind Series for kids - He read through 15 of the books and really liked them up to that point and then got bored with the 16th. Hardy Boys - He read a few of these and liked a couple of them (but not a LOT) and then didn't really like the third one he tried. Swipe by Evan Angler - He really liked this one and didn't like the 2nd book in the series (Sneak). Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - LOVED it and then complained it was too short. ;) Crispin: The End of Time by Avi - Liked it (sorta) - He would have never of considered reading it at all if I hadn't read the first in the series out loud to him first. Ereth's Birthday & Poppy by Avi - Liked them both but had to force himself to read through parts that weren't as interesting. Quake! by Joe Cottonwood - Loved it Hank the Cowdog series - Liked a lot of these The weird thing is he loves a lot of books that I read out loud to him but would hate them if he had to read them himself (historical fiction, etc.). Thanks in advance for any suggestions. :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
