Has she read Geronimo Stilton books? They're a big hit at my house.

DS6.5 is similar - he still gets overwhelmed with many words on a page, even though he _could_ read at a grade 4-5 level.

Sometimes covering the page with an envelope works for him - when he lets me do it.

He does better with graphic novels - there are some for younger kids (Baby Mouse?)

He also sometimes reads non-fiction - i.e. books that have lots of pictures and short snippets of facts.
