    Oh, another vote for those. I liked that series too.

    Nancy Drew was always great too. Have her develop a love of mystery.

    Thanks for all your input! I bought her the Percy Jackson set on your recommendations! I hear she is really into mythology now so that will be good. I think Boxcar children will be good for her birthday. Or babysitters club of course! Thanks!!

    Yes get them for her birthday! I read them around that age and I think they are what got me into my love of chapter books.

    Good choice.

    For a future gift you should look for the Catwings series by Ursula Leguin. Sweet little books about a cat family whose members were born with wings.

    Love the Boxcar series

    The "Doll People" and the sequels were great books and my sons loved those books. I think the author is last name Martin.

    Then some great classics: "The Secret Garden" and "The Little Princess" are great. Also "The Door in the Wall" is very moving.

    So many great choices!

    Bumping this old thread!! I gave my niece the Percy Jackson series. She didn't read it for a while but she recently did and loved it! She talks about it all the time and wants to visit Athens and see the Parthenon. she is such a bright kid. She reads nonstop. Thanks for the suggestions!

    It's been a while. You can maybe introduce BSC to her now! I've read about 5 of them in the last year. They're so quick and easy and nostalgic for me now that I read them as an adult so it's something fun for me to do. I still love them!

    I was thinking about that, buying her some of them. I just gave her my Harry potter 7 book hardback set.

    Rick Riordan has two other series, as well. If she enjoyed the Percy Jackson books, she'd probably enjoy those, too.

    There is also a continuation on the Harry Potter books by an author other than JK Rowling, if she enjoys those.

    How old is she now, 9?

    The Secret Garden and Island of the Blue Dolphins would be solid choices, too.
