Favorite Chapter Book Series for Young Girls

We may have mentioned a time or two or thirty that we like to read around here. If you have an elementary-age girl and are looking for book recommendations, the Senior Agents have you covered. Agent E {4th} and Agent {2nd} have read a combined total of 220 books {and counting} since our school year began the week of 1 July. 


Following are some of their favorite book series {with links so you can more easily check them out for yourself}. Most are fiction, although a few nonfiction selections made the list. {Note that some otherwise great books did not make the cut because they are not part of a series of related books.}

The “reading level” {whatever that is} varies, although most fall in the second to fifth grade range. A really great resource for determining such things {and finding more books!} is the Book Wizard at Scholastic {dot} com.
