15 Book Series Ideas for 5th Grade Reading Level (AR, Accelerated Reader)

So, last week I shared with you the list I created when I was looking up books for my nephew and today I am sharing with you book series ideas I found for my daughter. My daughter is in 4th grade and her AR level range is currently up to a 6.7, but also all of the 5th grade level as well. For the most part she is sticking to books in the 5th grade level because frankly, books in the 6th grade level get A LOT more complicated as far as social rules and social constructs and intimate relationships and she is not ready to be reading that. I know I have Hunger Games on the list and have not decided if she can read it or not. Yes, there are some series in the 6th grade level she can and has been reading (Harry Potter series and Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events are a couple.) I hope this helps give you some ideas on what to suggest to your child reading at a 5th grade reading level. These are all series, so it will take some time to get through all of them. She has read several of these series already this year, but she needed a new series to move on to.
