Children Book Series for Summer Reading

Kids have a lot of time during the summer. I like to encourage my kids to read during the summer months, when they can't play outside with friends because we're on vacation, it's raining, or we are at a siblings baseball game.

Series books provide a great way to encourage your children to read multiple books over the summer by introducing them to multiple books that continue to build on the same character.  I know I couldn't wait for the next Harry Potter book to come out or to read another Hardy Boys book.  Here's a list of book series by grade level that can encourage your kids to read as well.
