More Transitional Chapter Books

I got a note from Jill Patchin from Eau Claire today, saying if she'd known I would accept books in series for last month's reading goals, she would have had lots to recommend.  Jill runs My First Book Club, for kids just starting to read chapter books, and has had great luck with almost all of these titles (except Mrs. Noodlekugel by Daniel Pinkwater), especially these series:  Lulu (by Hilary McKay), Moongobble (by Bruce Coville) and Milo and Jazz Mysteries (by Lewis B. Montgomery).

Jill calls these books Bridge Books.
