There are few feelings more satisfying – to both young and old readers, alike – than meeting characters you come to regard as friends and can follow on their adventures in book after book after book. For younger readers, there’s the additional comfort of familiar language and plot that makes reading a series not only satisfying, but beneficial: kids who get hooked on a series boost confidence in their ability to tackle new stories and develop reading fluency.
From the popular BabyMouse series by Jennifer L. and Matthew Holm to Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians, there are series to suit every taste, for every kind of reader in K-5.
Throughout the month, we’ll be talking about series of all kinds, for all ages. We hope you’ll share some of your favorites, too!
