For the past two weeks, I talked about picture books that I discovered at my local library’s annual book sale. This week, I’ll discuss the early chapter books/early middle grade books that I found! Early chapter books/middle grade are some of my favorite books to read and I wasn’t disappointed with the selection at this year’s library sale. Here are the books that I purchased and my thoughts on them!
- Nancy Clancy: Super Sleuth by Jane O’Connor
- Nancy Clancy: Secret Admirer by Jane O’Connor
I read Super Sleuth and thought it was an okay read, but I can see how younger readers would really enjoy it! I think these are great early chapter books for fans of Fancy Nancy.
