How do I encourage my child to read chapter books?

My daughter is going into 4th grade this year. She loves to read but does not like chapter books. She wants the pages to have pictures and words. When we go to the library she checks out 40 picture books for the week. I have tried to steer her towards chapter books but she will only read them if she has to. She scored at a 5th grade level on her state test. How do I encourage her to read chapter books? Thank you.
