These books are great for young readers. You can get the complete set and let your young one immerse themselves in this funny little series.
This series about a little witch named Heidi Heckelbeck is rather darling. It’s a great chapter book set from younger grades!
Now Kate DiCamillo is an author of so many wonderful books. She writes books for all ages. For beginners in chapter books Mercy Watson is a great set to get. Who doesn’t love a clever little pig?
This box set of Junie B. Jones can get your little reader excited about reading. June B. Jones is definitely a silly little girl and easy to relate to. Even though she is outrageous it is fun to read her books.
Get started on the Magic Treehouse series if you haven’t already! These books are full of adventure and they really get kids interested in history and science!
When I was younger I LOVED Boxcar Children. The mysteries were so intriguing and I loved trying to figure it out on my own.
Let’s be honest who doesn’t love Ramona?
Another good mystery author is Ron Roy. Get hooked with his A to Z Mysteries.
I haven’t met a kid yet who doesn’t thoroughly enjoy the Percy Jackson books.
This book is on my list of must-reads, it is so well written and it really tugs on your heart strings.
Adventure is the best way I know to get a young reader to love reading!
I first fell in love with this series when I read Goose Girl. Then the series continues with her friends and their stories. This is a great set for young girls!
Did you know there are more books connected with Ella Enchanted? They are a good read! Loved these books when I was younger. Such fun spin offs of classic fairytales.
Read this book- if you dare! This book is full of secrets and possibly magic!
Read this cute young romantic comedy, girls love this one!
This book is written like an autobiography. Maggie lives and extraordinary life but that doesn’t mean everything in her life is perfect.
Another Kate DiCamillo book that has always been a favorite. This realistic fiction book is great for young readers because it helps them see there are great stories outside of fantasy and science fiction!
This is a work of historical fiction, but it is a gentle introduction to the Holocaust and World War II. It is about a Jewish family in Denmark that struggles to find refuge across the sea in Sweden.
Roald Dahl has written many books that are worth reading and I would put them all on this list but it would go on forever that way. So Matilda it is! Such a clever book about a young, intelligent girl who very much loves to read.
