Remember curling up with a great book on the living room couch, and becoming so invested in the story that your parents had to ask you more than once to come to dinner? If so, then you know that when you meet special characters, like inquisitive Harriet in Harriet the Spy, they become your friends for life.
You don't have to leave them behind in the nostalgia of years past: Carry on the very special tradition of enjoying timeless chapter books by giving them to your kids. These books introduce widely-loved narratives, unforgettable characters, and important life lessons, all while boosting children's reading comprehension skills. Some also reintroduce favorite friends: For instance, The Baby-Sitters Club #1-12 Collection offers fresh editions of the classic series. One day, your child will be able to share how the stories were a special childhood memory for them.
