Check out these kids books series!
📕 The Enid Blyton books have been a hit with Mr 9; he’s enjoyed reading them over the years. The themes covered in these books include…
…and mystery 🔍
🐻 📚 The Bear Grylls Adventures series has been a hit with both boys, from 6 and up. They are great for transitioning from picture books, and onto chapter books….
✔️ The font is fun.
✔️ The chapters are short.
✔️ The stories seem interesting (I read one as a read-aloud with them, and it was enjoyable!)
✔️ There are some pictures.
These books are a perfect and fun bridge into the world of chapter books.
🦖 📚 The Dinosaur Land series is great for the same reason as the Bear Grylls Adventures…
☑️ …a great bridge between picture books and chapter books.
☑️ There are pictures in this book too, and the chapters are on the shorter side.
Mr 9 loved them a few years back and they really took off his reading journey.
🌎 📕 The Planet Omar books…
😂 …get plenty of laughs
✍🏽 …have fun fonts and pictures throughout
🤩…and the stories are really engaging for the boys.
Mr 9 has read them for a few years and will share funny lines with me from the book (still remember some of the lines he’s shared with me).
☪️ I love that these books centre a Muslim family.
The author, Zanib Mian, is captivating and hilarious in her writing.
📦 🚗 📚 And finally, Gertrude Chandler Warner’s Boxcar children.
We read book 1 as a read aloud and then my elder son read the next few collections on his Kindle.
In this series…
▪️ The first 16 books are available on kindle and the rest are available in paperback for now.
▪️There are about 150 sequels; but, as far as I’m aware, Gertrude wrote only the first 19 and the rest were ghostwritten.
I intend to purchase the whole set now inshaAllah.
