Chapter books for 5.5 yr old (Kindergarten)

Recommended Posts

DD has turned out to be an avid reader. She is currently reading  the Billie B Brown and Hey Jack  books , but at the rate she is going through them I will need to find her another series to read soon. Any recommendations for a similar series ? Billie B Brown is exactly the right level for her at the moment in terms of difficulty and subject matter so I wouldn’t want to give her something a lot more advanced as this may discourage her . Thanks

I don't know the Billie B Brown books, but my early reader devoured all the Ella and Olivia books - have a look at those to see if they suit.

Rainbow magic is very popular, there’s stacks of them. Dd liked Zac power a lot.

Hot dog by Anh Do might suit. Also Ninja Kid

Ivy and bean is another though they are a bit longer

Clemantine Rose

Rosie Revere

Tashi is an oldie but a goodie

Juliet nearly a vet

Lily D, V.A.P. (these are little bit harder)

The Bad Guys is a pretty easy and fairly hilarious series (not so much bad guys, as "trying to overcome their stereotype guys") 😄

It can be good for them to reread them more than once. 

I’m trying to remember what Ds read at that atage and I think he spent a lot of time reading his own picture books. It was amazing to be able to read them to himself.

What about the Enid Bluyton “Naughtiest Girl” series? Or perhaps her Wishing Tree books might work.

Squishy Taylor and EJ 10 are slightly ahead of BBB, but you may be surprised at how fast she advances. (There may be other EJ books at different levels I think?)

I haven’t read them but came across some early readers by Amy Adeney,  the Tilda Teaches series. It looks really cute and at the right level.

Real Pigeons is another one of the more cartoony books. 

Also second the Juliet nearly a Vet.

I feel billie b brown are about the simpliest of chapter books of that type. Olivia and ella are a very slight step up  - but once your dd has got through all the bbb books she will probably be ready for ella. There are lots of series on par with this (some mentioned above) my daughters fav are secret kingdom series, clemintine rose and ivy and bean)

My daughter loved the Billie B brown and Hey Jack books, she also read the Pearl the Magical unicorn books, (there is about 6 of them) also The Ella and Olivia books.  Another series we found was the Princess in Black books.  Have a look in your local library lots of different books.

Ginger Green Play Date Queen is a great match for Billie B Brown. My kindy daughter loves the series.

The Violet Mackerel series are lovely to read.

Ella and Olivia is good, which I think moves onto Ella's Diaries.

Lulu Bell is good but a step up.
