Our 8 year old daughters is 2e, Asperger's and gifted. About two years ago, she read most of the Animorphs series. The school librarian said that she is the only student in the school who checks out Animorphs, with a few individual exceptions here and there as other kids want to check out the books with her encouragement.
Our daughter has read most of the books over and over again, but there are a few she will not read. She has read Harry Potter volumes 1-5 over and over, but will not read 6 and 7 as they are too scary.
The point is -- we need some new material! She wants to read sci-fi, and she even writes sci-fi, but she wants something a lot like Animorphs or Harry Potter but new. She also read all of the Inponderables series a few times by the time she was through with kindergarten. http://www.amazon.com/Penguins-Have-Knees-Imponderables-Book/dp/B000F7BP7K/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1341789340&sr=8-2&keywords=imponderables+in+books
The other series she likes and reads often is the Nasty Nature series by Nick Arnold.
She reads very fast and she is incredibly picky about what to read. Her elementary school librarian is not much help other than not getting rid of the Animorphs. Should I ask the middle school librarian?
Also, on the subject of reading, the school was reluctant to test her beyond the same DRA 40 score she has had since she entered 1st grade, so I don't have an accurate idea of her reading level.
Please help. She is bored this summer and we don't know where to turn. She likes robots, legos, sci-fi, and fantasy.
