We made some Kindle book suggestions back in January, and it was such a big hit, we decided to go searching again for some more recommendations. Fortunately, there is no shortage of reading material out there for kids, and especially for kids with electronic devices geared towards reading like the Kindle Fire.

We love this series, and in case you didn’t pick up the latest in the series last fall, it’s here for you know on Kindle. Here’s a preview.
The pressure’s really piling up on Greg Heffley. The only thing he’s good at is playing video games, but his mother wants him to broaden his horizons by doing something—anything!—else.
When Greg finds an old video camera in his basement, he thinks he may have discovered just the thing to prove he’s got big-time talent. With the help of his best friend, Rowley, Greg hatches a plan to make a scary movie . . . and to become rich and famous in the process.
But is doubling down on moviemaking a smart plan? Or is it just a recipe for doubling Greg’s troubles?
Ages 6 – 10
Remember Flat Stanley? Do you know about the series of books about him? They are great and ready to be introduced to a new generation. Here is a bit of what you can expect.

This is the very first Flat Stanley adventure, updated with crisp new art.
