Reading to the Beginning Reader

I had a mom come into the library this week asking what chapter books were recommended to read to her 6 year old daughter who was just beginning to read.  I recommended the Magic Tree House series, A to Z Mysteries, and some of Ben Baglio's books. The teacher had recommended Junie B. Jones.  I have found that some parents are opposed to Junie B. because of her grammar, so I mentioned that to the mom as well as telling her how laugh out loud funny they are.  I told her that when I used to read them to my daughters, it was an opportunity to discuss grammar. She chose one of each and one of the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary, too.

Does anybody have any favorites that they read to their emerging readers?
