I was going to buy a couple books for a neighbors daughters birthday. Any suggestions. I think she is in kindergarden or 1st grade.

Junie B. Jones. Magic Treehouse. Those are both series with lots of books in them.

If she's in K-1, I'd recommend any Beginner's Chapter Books. My old Borders used to have spinning racks filled with these books, which are rated 1-5 according to reading ability and age/grade. Very slim out-size paperbacks, but with some very good series for readers who are starting.

There are some Disney Princess books, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Dr. Seuss, and a lot of classics. Reasonably priced too. Fromupthere suggested Junie B Jones, which are extremely popular and very funny, loved by moms too. You can get them in boxed sets of 3 or 4. I think..they're also available in Spanish language editions? Maybe? Used to be, I think. lol

Make sure the books are not beneath her. She will grow into them, if they are too advanced. Find out from her parents if she actually has any reading skills and interest. If she doesn't already seem inclined to reading, it might be better to look for activity books.
