    Hey guys,

    My babygirl used to have a lot of nightmares until we started dating and I started reading her to sleep every night (within reason). We have read quite a few books together and we're currently reading The Hunger Games series but we're almost done. I also read to her throughout the day while I have downtime and she has tasks to do. There's a lot of reading in our relationship. Does anyone have any book recommendations to read to her? She isn't capable of having a daytime book and a nighttime book. I've included some of the books she's really enjoyed me reading to her so far!

    The Haunting of Ashburn House by Darcey Coates
    The Hunger Games & Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (she does not want me to read mockingjay)
    Asylum series by Madeline Roux
    The Program by Suzanne Young (she did say these were a little slow)
    Harry Potter
    The Secret Garden
    Bambi

    Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark 

     

    (I do omit specific parts of books i.e some deaths, animal harm, other triggers for her, so please include if they have any of those in the book if possible. Thank you!)

    Fablehaven is an AWESOME series! It's by Brandon Mull. He started a sequel to that series, too, if you like Fablehaven. It has magical creatures and two adolescents/teens that get into and out of trouble. It's a happy book series, and I've read it a lot.

    The His Dark Materials triology is a really good read imo. Its a great fantasy setting and once you're done reading the books there's always the TV show and Golden Compass film to watch so you can have fun comparing them all.

    Assassins apprentice, live ship traders, golden fool, dragon keepers, Fitz and the Fool - all series (3-4 books each) by Robin Hobb. They are my absolute favourites - trigger warnings, discussion of death and some animal harm (minimal - maybe 3-4x across the 15 books).

    This was very nice to read! It made me feel very warm inside. This is my first time being a caregiver and I want to give her everything I possibly can. Thank you <3 it's nice to hear that I'm doing the right thing.

    There's a series called "The Royal Diaries" that I loved as a middle schooler. I can't recall if there's specific violent or death scenes but they're a historical fiction series so naturally there are deaths and things that occur as part of the storylines.

    There is a middle grade fantasy duology called The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani which is a lovely read that isn't too gruesome and has lovely simple themes as well as a few life lessons.
    Anything by Kristin Cashore and Garth Nix.
