The Black Stallion (she is on this series currently)
Mary Downing Hahn
My Sister the Vampire
Edgar & Ellen
The Books of Elsewhere
Where the Red Fern Grows
Because of Winn-Dixie
Homecoming by Cynthia Voigt (she wasn't interested enough to read the rest of the series, which I loved!!)
Jane-Emily by Patricia Clapp
The Ghost Next Door by Wylly Folk St. John
Those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head. I tried to get her interested in the Warriors series but she hasn't read any of them. She is really wanting to move up to the teen section and has gotten some books from there, but I am leery of the content in a lot of them. She has asked the librarians at our local library for help in identifying some authors she might be interested in, but 95% of their suggestions are books she has already read! If anyone has any ideas about books she might enjoy, I would appreciate the feedback.
I also read and loved Tom Sawyer, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, Kidnapped, and so on.
You hit one of my favorite buttons. I used to be a childrens librarian and then worked in one of the mega-bookstores. I LOVE recommending to your daughter's age. There is so much!
Has she read any Tamora Pierce or Diane Duane? Duane's Young Wizard series is excellent. Better than Harry Potter, in my opinion. Anything by Tamora Pierce - I'd start her with Protector of the Small series or Winding Circle series. They are not only entertainment. They help to instill deep values. You'd probably like them too.
Reminds me to recommend another fantasy - The Princess Bride. It's written by the screenwriter of the movie version, and is, possibly, better than the film.
