    We have been doing a lot of leveled readers (guided level M-0 plus or minus) with DS4. He likes them a lot - we just put them in a pile and he picks the ones he likes. (we have been focused on animals and vehicles)

    What comes next? More leveled readers at a slightly higher level? Short chapter books? I want to keep the fun going and avoid stagnation and frustration.

    Short chapter books can be good. Little Apple is a line of Scholastic books targeted at young readers. There are numerous books in numerous series. Here's a sampling:

    If he finds a series/topic he likes, there are usually a dozen or so titles in that series to keep you going for a little while.

    Thanks! We are starting to run low on the current genres. We will try some of these!

    There are lots of choices over in the Recommended Resources section, where we have threads for different age levels. I'll put in a good word for one of my favorite series, Mr. Putter and Tabby, which I love for its gentle humor and its matter-of-fact treatment of its elderly characters.

    Daniel Pinkwater has written some awesome short chapter books! DS loved the Werewolf Club books, for instance.

    Magic Treehouse is a good early chapter book series (time travel to various points in history)

    Cynthia Rylant was our primary author for about a year. Mr. Putter and Tabby, Henry and Mudge, and another series (something about a pig, maybe?) were huge hits at our house.

    Our library has an aisle in the children's section called "Moving Up." Lots of short chapter books here, larger print, pictures on most or all pages, and so on.

    I'll second the Magic Treehouse, too.
