The only one of those that is familiar to me is the Rainbow Magic Fairies.

We're still in to Dr. Seuss and other short books at our house.

Do you think she'd like the Guardians of Ga'Hoole books if you read them to her? I will say that they are so very different (and better, in my humble opinion) than the movie. They can get a bit dark, but not nearly as dark as Harry Potter. I read them to my DD. The movie was pretty intense and I think that it's easier to create your own mental images without the filmmakers creating the pictures for you (and in some cases much more graphic or disturbing than what our minds paint). We often do maybe a chapter or two at bedtime.

Amy, how old was your DS when he read Harry Potter? I'm thinking that my daughter might enjoy them, but I don't know if she'd be too young yet at 8 years old?

Has he ever read the "Dear America" books? They are historical fiction written in diary format. We've read some. There's a 3-book series about a boy named Joshua who travels with his family on the Oregon Trail. Another 2-3 book series about a boy (can't recall his name at the moment) on the Underground Railroad. We also read one about a girl named Bess Brennan who was blind (also fiction, but historical) and went to the Perkins School for the Blind and learned braille. My daughter went on to have great interest in Braille and we now own a Perkins Brailler (thanks to my mom, who's also known as Santa Claus).

We still love Dr. Seuss at our house! My favorite is The Sneetches. My DD likes the one about the pale green pants with nobody in them. LOL! I can't remember the name of it is. We have it in this Dr. Seuss Anthology. My DD reads that book quite frequently. :)

He may have read those when he was younger.
