Read Next! After Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Here's me:

Yup, I'm so happy I'm dancing!

My friend Karyn asked me if I had suggestions for books to reccommend to students who looooooove books like Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney or the Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne. I sent her a list of the books that came to mind and then I had an idea. I'll start a new type of post where I'll take a beloved book and share a list of books to recommend to kid readers. And here it is. The first Read Next of hopefully many to come!

Have a book you would to see features on Read Next here at Teach Mentor Texts? Tweet me and I'll ask the Twitterverse to chime in and then maybe create a post to share here!

If a reader looooooooooooooves...
