Could anyone recommend books or series that are sort of 'realistic' fiction but don't feature snarky little kids? smile My son (age 7) is reading at about a 3rd grade level and has decided that 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' is just the best thing ever. I do think the series is funny but he's not emotionally sophisticated enough to understand why the main character isn't always very nice. He's also been reading the 'Weird School' series and it has similar issues with name-calling, etc. I don't want to be prudish but would love to find something that has 'real life' story lines but is a bit more wholesome. Any suggestions?
