Ten Great Book Series for Kids

Me - Ten Great Book Series for Kids, wow! Here are 5 great series for early chapter readers:


 
1)Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and its sequels by Judy Blume - The books are very fun and anybody who has siblings can totally relate to the books.
2) Beezus and Ramona books by Beverly Cleary - This books are like the flipside of the Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing Books. Not only are these books about sisters instead of brothers but the Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing books are told from the point of view of the older sibling and these books are told from the point of view of the younger sibling. However, these books are equally funny, and anyone with a sibling can equally relate to them.

3) Judy Moody books by Megan McDonald - These books are also very funny, and you can't wait to find out what Judy Moody is going to do next.
4) My Weird School books by Dan Gutman - More funny books. However, these are about school and crazy teachers. The things that happen in this books are much crazier than anything that really happens in school. That's what makes them so fun to read.
5) Rainbow Fairy Books - They are very easy for younger kids. There are quite a lot of them. Any kid who loves fairies will love these books.

Mom - Here are five great series for beginning readers.
1) Fancy Nancy books- These books show that just because a book is for kids doesn't mean all the words have to be simple. Fancy Nancy books help kids to increase their vocabulary in a fun way. They make it cool to be smart.
2) Amelia Bedelia books- Kids can laugh at the antics of Amelia Bedelia while at the same time learning that it is okay to mix things up once in a while.
3) Dr. Seuss books - These books are classic and fun although perhaps at times a little too reliant on made-up words.
4)  Bob books - These books are simple and easy to read. They are perfect for kids who are just starting  to learn to read. They give new readers confidence in their emerging  reading skills.


5) Book series related to TV and movie characters etc. - It is not that these are necessarily great books but if having books about their favorite characters makes some kids that would otherwise be reluctant to read want to read than that is a good thing.

And that's our view. What is your favorite book series for kids?

Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.

  2. I loved the Ramona Quimby & the Judy Blume books when I was a kid. I didn't know they were still in print! A lot of books from my childhood aren't. I'll have to let my friend who has kids these ages know about these!

    1. Yes, they are still in print, and there have been more books written since I was a kid. Thanks for visiting Says Me Says Mom, and for your comment.

  3. Ahhhhh! Dr Seuss - I adore Dr Seuss!! Here in the UK we have very different books and characters (which is why when I was lucky enough to attend the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in 2003 I had not a clue what most of the characters were! I was totally bemused, but equally enchanted!), but my son loved me to read Dr Seuss because of the sing-song element to the rhymes. He still remembers Green Eggs & Ham, even 'tho he's now 25 *chuckle*

  4. I like the idea of using favourite characters for reluctant readers. So often we try & get our kids to read the books we choose for them - it's so much better to allow them to lead us and choose the books that will engage them. I'd rather have our youngest son read a Pokemon book than no book at all.

    1. I totally agree. My older daughter loves to read. My younger one only likes funny books and books about animals. If she doesn't love the book she is reading we cannot get her to read at all. Thanks for visiting Says Me Says Mom, and for your comments.

  6. OMG I loved Amelia Bedelia as a child, and I have recently introduced her to my wild and crazy daughter! I have a 9-year-old son who is a great reader, but hasn't fallen in love with reading. I struggle to find some series which are more interesting for boys than girls and which are the "just right" level of challenging text. I will suggest he try out the Dan Gutman books ASAP! #Blogelina

    1. Oh yes. We love Little House on the Prairie too. We once did a whole post just on Little House on the Prairie, http://saysmesaysmom.blogspot.com/2012/04/little-house-on-prairie.html. Anne of Green Gables is great too. I never read The Babysitters Club but I believe my daughters have read one or two of the books. Thanks for your great ideas for additions to our list and for visiting Says Me Says Mom.

  12. I quite like reading children's book especially those for young teens! Even as a reviewer, I don't get much chance to read them, though. I don't have much of an excuse to buy them either as I don't have young children. I dread to think what people would think if I started to fill my bookshelves with kiddies books!

  19. Some of these are new to me and its always a good idea get get some kind of an idea of what books are about before you buy, or buy as a gift. I never read Dr. Seuss, I am English, but I loved lots of books and the actual physical feel of a book held as you read has no equal.

  20. I loved the Beverly Cleary books and the Judy Blume books when I was young. My oldest is in Kindergarten, so I'm going to have to get him these series'. Also, we love the Judy Moody movie, so I'm sure the books are even better! Thank you for all the great suggestions!

  22. Yes, to all 10 series mentioned! we are such book worms that we have read a book or two or all of the books in each of the series mentioned. As our familyhas grown we unfortunately do less buying and more borrowing of books! The expense and space were becoming overwhelming!

    1. Yes, I agree my daughter likes to own books and doesn't like to part with them, but we only have so much money to buy books and only so much space to keep them. That doesn't mean you can't borrow books though because that's what libraries are for, and if you have a Kindle you can even borrow some Kindle books from Amazon.

  25. Great post! Dr. Suess has always been my favorite. Fancy Nancy is fun and Bob books are great. Judy Bloom is good but a little scary for younger kids. There are so many wonderful books. No matter how long you are on a computer or how often you play video game there is nothing quite like having a book in your hand to read! At any age.

  32. This is a great group of books. My daughter has always loved the Fancy Nancy books (too old and mature now to read them). She has also read a couple of the Rainbow Fairy books and enjoyed them. Of course Dr. Seuss books are just classics.

    1. My daughter also loved Fancy Nancy books but she is too old for them too. I think part of the reason she liked them was because she always loved big words just like Nancy.
