Our Top Ten List of Series for Young Readers — 20 Comments

  1. Stopped by blog hop and found this great list. My daughter loves the A to Z mysteries, Cam Jansen, and the Boxcar Children. We have one of the Ralph Mouse books, but haven’t read it yet :0)

  2. Most of these books bring me back ages! I have recently shared Flat Stanley with my daughter and she thought it was funny. I have some of the others here on her shelf for when she is a little older. Thanks for posting.

  3. Another great list! My son is not a big (fiction) reader, but he’s been enjoying the Henry Huggins books this summer. Good to know you can get the set on Audible! 🙂 We recently listened to another Beverly Cleary book that we loved: Emily’s Runaway Imagination. Fun book, sweet characters, lots of fun mishaps. 🙂

    • Thank you, Carolyn! As you can see, we love Beverly Cleary too, and the collections on Audible cannot be beat! We just picked up the one with Emily’s Runaway Imagination in it and can’t wait to listen to it!

  4. When I was a librarian, I could not keep these books on the shelves. All of these are popular with the fourth through sixth graders. More fourth and fifth for some. I love the Geronimo Stilton books. They were such fun reads. Thansk for sharing at Literacy Musing Mondays!

  5. Hi Tina,
    First, I hope all is well with your family. 🙂 This is a great post. I agree with all these selections. Kids love them all. I have always liked the Flat Stanley series. Kids like Cam Jansen and the others you showcase. I shared this via FB. I came via Kid Lit blog hop, but I’m a fan. 🙂

  6. I love this!! I can’t wait to read the rest of your posts in this series. I’ll admit, I’m now waiting with bated breath to find out if one of them might help me find great chapter books to read to a 3.5 year old with a great attention span. So far, we’ve read the original Winnie The Pooh, and that’s it (and she’s unhappy with me, for not finding her a new one, yet). I was thinking maybe Charlotte’s Web, or Stuart Little…? I remember hearing them as a child, but have no idea how old I was, and am only familiar with them now because of the movies. We read shorter books all the time, but I would love to start reading her a chapter every night at bedtime of a longer book.

    • Oh, Alena! I’m so glad you like it! The new list is up today so hopefully you’ll find some new favorites. As for read-alouds for your wee one, I’d try the next two in the Winnie the Pooh series – The House at Pooh Corner and When We Were Very Young – if she enjoyed the first one so much. I also think Milly Molly Mandy is PERFECT for little ones as it is so very gentle. Charlotte’s Web might be too sad for her depending on her wiring. I’d also recommend the Janette Oke Animal Friends series for her age. Best of luck, and let me know if you hit on something she loves!

  7. Thank you so much for all the good reads for children, God bless you indeed. Deo Wasswa Mulema, Head Librarian Heritage International School, Uganda.
