ChatterBlock’s Favorite Kids' Books Series

Published Aug 1, 2014

A good series that really intrigues and resonates will draw in your child in ways that stand alone books can not. And there are so many excellent series being published right now, there is no shortage to choose from. See the sidebar for our favorites.

If your child has a particular interest, try and match a book series to it or in the very least, choose a stack of books along that theme. For instance, as a young girl, I’d read anything that featured horses, needless to say my mom made sure I had a stack of Flicka books to hand at all times!

This is a great list of books! As a child, I LOVED going to the library and would always come home with a stack of books. I was all about the horse-themed books as well! And I was a huge Junie B. Jones fan. I thought those books were hilarious!
