How Many Books Has Mary Pope Osborne Written

Do you have any children’s book recommendations.

I’m going to the library sometime this week, and I want to check out some books for my younger brother and sister. My brother is seven years old and a beginning reader. I don’t want one that is too long he’d get frustrated trying to read, or one with all pictures either. He’s in the first grade. My sister is nine…

When I was a child, I loved A Child’s Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson. It has poems which are easy to understand as well as lovely illustrations. I remember never growing tired of it. In fact, I still have my old copy. Check Amazon… to get an idea about it.Your brother might enjoy:-Jumanji by Chris Van Allsburg…-Curious George by H. A. Rey…-The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein Little Engine That Could: The Complete, Original Edition by Watty Piper, perhaps, more for a girl: Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans Complete Tales of Beatrix Potter (there are some great illustrated versions)-Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne Umbrella by Jan Brett (and others by Jan Brett)-Aesop’s Fables: A Classic Illustrated Edition by Aesop (making sure you get an illustrated version)-Fairy Tales from Hans Christian Andersen: A Classic Illustrated Edition by Hans Christian Andersen (making sure you get an illustrated version & one that includes the complete tales)-The Real Mother Goose (also get an illustrated version like )-The Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne-The Door in the Wall by Marguerite De Angeli may want to check the “Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought” section of Amazon under each book, too.)Your sister may like some more classic stories. For instance:-A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett-Little Lord Fauntleroy by Frances Hodgson Burnett-The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett-Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm by Kate Douglas Wiggin-Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter-Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers-Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie-The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum-Black Beauty by Anna Sewell-Heidi by Johanna Spyri-Hans Brinker, or The Silver Skates by Mary Mapes Dodge-some of E. Nesbit’s books like The Story of the Treasure Seekers, The Railway Children, The Enchanted Castle (and others)-The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew by Margaret Sidney-Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (and others of hers like Little Men, Jo’s Boys, Eight Cousins, Rose in Bloom, A Garland for Girls, Jack and Jill, An Old Fashioned Girl, Under the Lilacs)-Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery (and others of hers, including the rest of the series)-National Velvet by Enid Bagnold-The Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis-The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien (might be a bit old, but she may like it)-Stuart Little by E.B. White-Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White (and others)She may also enjoy:-Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh-Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo (and others of hers)-Coraline by Neil Gaiman-Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl-The Mystery of the Crimson Ghost by Phyllis A. Whitney (She also wrote some other suspense stories for younger people.)-Caddie Woodlawn by Carol Ryrie Brink-The Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder-The Wicked, Wicked Ladies in the Haunted House by Mary Chase-The Courage of Sara Noble by Alice Dalgleish-The Market Square Dog by James Herriot-The Wrinkle in Time series by Madeleine L’EngleI believe I was younger than your sister is now when I first read Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. I didn’t appreciate the satire aspect of the book, but still I loved it. Just something for you to consider…There are so many more that could be mentioned, but I hope I helped a bit.

  4. I love the book The Hard Times Jar by Ethel Footman Smothers for your sister. It’s a cultural book and very cute. If you are down with reading with them you can look into Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Lois Lenski’s Indian Captive, Judith Viorst’s Super-Completely and Totally the Messiest, and my personal favorite, Marcus Pfister’s The Rainbow Fish.

  5.…How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long…My grand daughter enjoyed The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis

  6. Danger on Panther Peak (also exciting)

  7. It really depends on the age. The kids in my class love the “Don’t Let the Pigeon” books. There are several now. The first graders in my class lover reading Junie B Jones at the end of the year. The second graders love the Spiderwick Chronicles. The third graders really like the Series of Unfortunate Events and The Chronicles of Narnia. The Box car Children are great for the 4th graders and they start actually being able to finish the Harry Potter Books.

  8. Amelia Bedelia books by Peggy ParishThe authors have released a new book, part one of three and it’s called Beyond The Spiderwick Chronicles.

  9. The Story of the Treasure Seekers by E. Nesbit

  10. Homer Price by Robert McCloskey

  11. For your brother, maybe Kevin Henkes “Wemberly Worried.” His favorite book is by Jan Brett, and she has several others, all with her distinctive illustration style. He might also enjoy Patricia Palocco. There are beautiful versions of all the classic fairy tales that would be great for’s a perfectly working link, no scam!Little House on the Prairie, in the Big Woods,etc by L. I. WilderEdit: “Painful,” thanks for reminding me about Alexander and the…etc. All of Judith Viorst’s books are great.

  14. For the 3rd grader maybe try the Judy Moody series–fun school related stories but not as juvenile as Junie B. They are by Megan MacDonald. Or try David Adler’s Cam Jansen series–easy mysteries.Mary PoppinsBut, I can make some recommendations. For your sister, try Louis Sachar’s “Sideways Stories from Wayside School” books. They’re very funny. She could probably also manage the Series of Unfortunate Events books by Lemony Snicket. Beverly Cleary would be another good author for her. Jon Sciezska writes great spoofs of classic fairy tales, like “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs” and “The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales.” They’re really funny.

  15. For all kids, the Narnia books by CS Lewis, Frank L Baums Oz series and the books of Roald Dahl are classics.

  16. My best suggestion–ask the librarian who is there! Hope you get some good books.

  17. For boys, try The Hardy Boys.The Railway Children by E. NesbitOwls in the Family by Farley MowatMysteries by Peggy Parish (Clues in the Woods, Key to the Treasure, Mystery of Hermit Dan, Pirate Island Adventure, etc.)where the wild things are by maurice sendak is a classic. look for caldecott or newberry award winners . these are awards given to the best in childrens books. one i cant remember which is for illustraion the other is for story.

  18. “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” was my favorite in first grade… and I still love it.

  25. Since you are going to the library, ask the children’s librarian there for some recommendations. You’ll get just the right books.

  26. The Bears on Hemlock Mt.Henry and Mudge the dog series by Cynthia Rylant

  27. For your sister, check out ANYTHING written by Bill Wallace. Some of my favorites are:If you’re going for something a bit bulkier, though, I would do the Nancy Drew series. I also read those when I was little–they were the staple of my childhood literature, and Nancy Drew was practically one of my heroes. Basically, each book (there are lots) has a mystery of its own, and Nancy gets to solve it. Or, if you’re looking for a boy, I would go for the Hardy Boys. This series is pretty much identical to the Nancy Drew series, except it’s aimed for boys that would feel dumb reading Nancy Drew.I live overseas and a very popular book series (mostly for boys) are the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz. They are based on a young spy working with the british secret service. The newest addition to the series is Snake Head.

  28. And you can never go wrong with anything by Shel Silverstein.

  29. [DELDUP()]books by Roald DahlAt age 7 your brother will likely read/enjoy books from the First Reader section and from the Picture Book area. His favorite, The Mitten, is from the folklore/fairy tale area and I’d start with other books by that awesome author Jan Brett. She has other books in the folklore/fairy section plus lots of others in the Picture book area. A few specific titles: Tops and Bottoms by Janet Stevens, Two of Everything by Lily Hong and No Dinner by Jessica Souhami. He might also try some First reader authors like Peggy Parrish and Cinthia Rylant. Another great fairytale author is Joseph Bruchac–try Racoon’s Last Race by him.

  30. McCarthy’s “Moon Plane”

  31. Mr. Putter and Tabby his cat series by Cynthia RylantFor your brother:Treasure Seekers: Follow the Ghosts is one of the funniest games in the logical challenges and objects collection genre. Discover some of its features and get hooked to its interesting story.

  32. The Boxcar Children Mysteries by Gertrude C. Warner

  33. Pobody’s Nerfect, seriously if you can find it it’s a gem.For girls, there is Nancy Drew and Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery. I read both of these as a child and they were probably my favorites. There are also the Little Women books (Louisa May Alcott) and Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

  34. Nancy P. Brummet i believe

  35. I would definitely go for The Spiderwick Chronicles. I read them (and I’m older), but was still absolutely enthralled. Between Holly Black’s writing and Tony Diterlizzi’s illustrations, nothing can go wrong. Everything in this little series is richly imagined, and I enjoyed the journey every step of the way.Betsy Tacy series by Maud Hart Lovelace

  36. Magic Tree House series – Jack and Annie travel to all sorts of times and places

  37. Nate the Great Detective series by Marjorie W. Sharmat

  38. Amy

  39. Please ask the librarian. You’ll be very pleased with the help you’ll get, I’m sure.Sendak’s “Where the Wild Things Are”Charlotte’s Web, Stuart Little, Trumpet of the SwanWell, I don’t know what age you’re talking about really, but I ‘say the Harry Potter series are excellent and not just for children. Personally I think older kids/people will be able to appreciate it a lot more.
