An extensive list of non-twaddle series to keep elementary readers (boys & girls) in books.

Books for Elementary Kids to Read for Fun

The problem with having kids who read is that you have to keep them in books.

Here are the series I’ve collected or returned to at the library to keep my elementary student readers in books.

Start with

When they’re older and need more, turn to

Plus we have a shelf full of Eyewitness Books that the boys love to page through and browse and copy pictures out of.

I’m just glad my boys have formed no prejudice about reading the same books over and over again! Remember and teach your children: real readers reread.

Edited to add: This list in pdf for printing or saving!

    You know, I read and re-read the Sword Bearer and the Tower of Geburah many times, but never realized there were four other books in the series I hadn’t read. Time to fix that.

      I think we had three books, didn’t we? I had thought it was a trilogy. Hans had first picked up Matt’s old copy at Grandma’s house. :)

    These lists are great. Is there a printable version somewhere that I’m not seeing? I know I want to save this list by itself for next year or two when my boys are just a bit older.

    I just discovered your recipe for simple granola, btw, I can tell it’s going to be lifechanging.

      Oh, I hadn’t made a printable version, but I can do that pretty easily. Do you use Evernote? You can also use the web clipper to save the page. Watch for an update with a pdf. :)
