The Best Book Sets for Kids of Every Age This Year

Sep 30, 2021

One of the most powerful and memorable presents to give the kids in your life is a great book. But even better are book sets: Kids can get a lot of use out of a book set that captivates their imagination for months or even years to come. When kids read a slew of books in a series, it develops their reading fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, and knowledge on a particular subject. It also makes reading subsequent books in the series easier and more enjoyable — even for reluctant readers

If your child has already flown through the first book in Lauren Tarshis' popular I Survived series, you can now help them dive into even more great historical fiction stories with the brand new Continue the Series bundle, which includes books #2-20.  Readers will be transported back in time to some of history's most shocking events, lived through the eyes of children. 

Graphic novels are also widely popular amongst all kinds of readers, and Dav Pilkey's Hero Collection will send readers on adventures with their favorite zany superheroes Captain Underpants, Dog Man, and Cat Kid.
