10 Books for Kids Not Ready for Harry Potter

what if your child isn’t ready for Harry Potter? What books are similar but for a younger audience? I’ve scoured the internet looking for great fantasy adventure books, alike to the famous Harry Potter series, yet geared toward children who are NOT yet ready for the intensity that comes along with the Hogwarts life. So, here are 10 Books for Kids Not Ready for Harry Potter!

1. No Such Thing as a Witch (A Matter of Fact Magic Book) by Ruth Chew

Grade Level: 2-5 — Nora Cooper and her brother Tad don’t know what to make of their new neighbor Maggie Brown. She loves animals and has lots of them — a cat, a parakeet, a dog, and a large black lizard. The other cats and birds in the neighborhood seem to like Maggie as well. And Maggie makes the most delicious fudge. In fact, her fudge is so good, after one piece it almost seems as if Tad and Nora’s father are becoming animal lovers….and after several pieces, Nora can even have a conversation with the family dog, Skipper. But what happens when you have one piece to many? Read More.

2. Dragonbreath by Ursula Vernon

Grade Level: 2-4 — Danny Dragonbreath can’t breathe fire, but he has no fear. That comes in handy when a bad grade at school inspires him to enlist his cousin the sea serpent’s help with a research project. Using a hybrid of comic book panels and text this book is great for kids wanting more than early reader books but not yet ready for the length of Harry Potter. This is the first book in a series of 10 books. Read More.

3. Castle Hangnail by Ursula Vernon

Grade Level: 3-7 (Great for younger advanced readers) – When Molly shows up on Castle Hangnail’s doorstep to fill the vacancy for a wicked witch, the castle’s minions are understandably dubious. After all, she is twelve years old, barely five feet tall, and quite polite. But the castle desperately needs a master or else the Board of Magic will decommission it, leaving all of the minions without the home they love. Read More.
