My favorite chapter books when I was younger were by Carolyn Haywood - "B" is for Betsy and Eddie and His Big Deals. The stories took place in school, in Betsy's home, and in Eddie's neighbrohood. They had families and ate dinner and waited for the bus. THey were normal families without unicorns or fairy princesses, but the stories were magical to me. When I read those books, it was as if I was wrapped in a warm hug. I saw all the things that I loved and lived - my neighborhood, my friends, and my school. The only thing I didn't see was me.
Cows moo, ducks quack, and a Chinese dog goes "wang wang."
The coming generation's version of The Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson. Yes, I'm definitely too old for "My First Chapter Book" books, but it came with cute little doodles of girl with bowl haircuts. This is the kind of book I always thought I'd want to write (and have my sister illustrate).
