    Default Superhero books for early reader?

    DD (6yo) is really into superheroes right now. She was very excited to check out a Spiderman book from the library, but she found it a little too easy and wants something more challenging. It was a Level 2 early reader. So I'm looking for books at about a level 3 or 4. They don't need to be early reader books. I'd just like them to be at her reading level.

    Oh, she also loves Captain Underpants (ugh, what is the appeal of those books??), although she needs a little help reading those.

    Basically, while she loves books, she has been pretty indifferent about reading them herself. So I want to capitalize on this new interest in superheroes to help her enjoy reading.

    Batman "Time Thaw" is a level 3.
    Apparently there are quite a few more in the series on that level (look through the customers also bought)-

But when I do, I will look around with a wistfullness in my heart and miss the days where vibrant imaginations ran wild and there was evidence of life happening around me all the time!"

    If she likes Captain Underpants, you could try the Ricky Ricotta series by the same author. They are a bit easier if she is finding Captain Underpants a little challenging. DS went through a phase where he loved those types of books. While they are not great litterature, they kept his interest and improved his reading skills so it didn't bother me. He has since moved on to enjoy reading better books.

    Thanks for the recs! I will check all these out.

    mikeys_mom, I don't mind her reading Captain Underpants. I just don't want to be subjected to them myself! Ricky Ricotta looks like it might be perfect for her.
