With summer reading programs in full swing, it is a great time to make a book list for your new reader. These book series for new readers are fantastic resources to help your new reader gain confidence.
As parents, we want to encourage our kids to be readers. We know the benefits of reading, and how important it is to lay a foundation of reading in our homes. But, sometimes it is hard to get our kids into good books. A quality book series is a great way to garner interest in books and continue the love of reading. A child can become invested in the characters and storylines and will want to continue with the series to find out what happens.
These book series for new readers are great for those kids who are still sounding words out, or not quite independent readers.
