Hi! Fly Guy
My son is a 6-year-old emerging reader. I think this is one of the most difficult stages for picking books. Since reading is still a lot of work, it is important that I find books that he is excited to read and that are at the right reading level for him.
Tedd Arnold's Fly Guy series has been a great find for us. One, it is a series! I found not just one book he likes but a whole series, hooray! And he loves them. They are funny and have just the right amount of gross (like getting stuck in a smelly trash can) humor for him to be excited about.
They also have a great word/page ratio for him. I would say these are not at the level of a brand new reader but a little more experienced beginner reader.
