Book ideas for 7-year-olds?

I'm starting to create my book list for my 1st grade students. I need some good ideas! They're really into chapter books right now. Some of the ones they really enjoy are the Judy Blume series, The Boxcar Children, and Junie B. Jones. My girls like The Babysitters Club Little Sister books, and my boys enjoy R.L. Stine's Goosebumps (parents are ok with them! They want them to read!)

I hope you can give me some good ideas! I don't know all of the new books out there, and I've already pushed my favorites on them (Judy Blume and Boxcar Children).

    My daughter is 8 and in the 3rd grade and loves Diary of a Wimpy Kid, it is so popular there is a wait list to check it out from the schools library, and we already put her on the list at Boarders to get the new one!!

    While she is waiting for that one she is reading Dear Dumb Diary, it is like Diary of a Wimpy Kid but from a girls point of view!!!

    Those may be kind of advanced for your class, but you never know my daughter read advanced books when she was in 1st grade.

    Another good series is Diary of a Fly, they also have Diary of a Worm, and Diary of a Spider, all VERY FUNNY even I laugh.

    I used to like reading Morris Gleitzman (dont know if i spelt it right) books. It's good for both boys and girls.

    Jacqueline Wilson books are good too. (for girls)

    Chris Pike's Spooksville series is good for boys and girls. (whoever likes children's horror stories like Goosebumps)
