Junie B. Jones series (Barbara Park)
If you haven't yet read this hilarious series, you should. It is about a kindergartner named Junie B. Jones. She likes playing with her two eccentric friends Grace and Lucille. Junie B. also enjoys pasketti and pie. This series by Barbara Park is just darn right silly. They are full of great pictures by Denise Brunkus. One of my favorite books in this series is Junie B. Jones is a Beauty Shop Guy, where Junie B. wants to be, well, a beauty shop guy. She practices on her bunny slippers and her dog, and can't wait to give herself the best haircut of all. I love Barbara Park. She is so good at writing like a six year old. These books are nice and short, and are great for newer readers. I recommend these books for ages 7-10.
