Silver on the Tree
"I was an advid reader as a child. One of my favorite series was by Edward Eager. The books were Magic by the Lake, Half Magic, Seven Day Magic and a few others. They were about a group of children who stumbled into magic, but alwasy with a twist to it. (In Half Magic they always got half of what they wished for...) These are about 4th grade books, but I think a 2nd grade high reader would be able to read them fine.
Another two books I enjoyed were Downriver and River Thunder by Will Hobbs. Those are a kids adventure book rafting through the grand canyon. I read Downriver in 6th grade, but if you give it to kids much younger I would browse it first, they discuss a few mature topics, like stealing and under age drinking, because there is no adult supervision in the book.
My favorite book in 6th grade was Winter of Fire by Sherryl Jordan. It is out of print now and I would kill for a copy, my mother gave mine away."
