Here are some chapter books that made me laugh and make my students laugh. Sometimes a series seems to appeal predominantly to one gender in my library. Where that’s the case, I’ve noted that.
Big Nate, by Lincoln Peirce (tween/middle school – boys)
Dork Diaries, by Rachel Renee Russell (twenn/middle/school – girls)
Dear Dumb Diary, by Jim Benton (tween/middle school – girls)
My Weird School, by Dan Gutman (2nd/3rd grade)
Zeke Meeks, by D.L. Green (3rd-5th grade)
