The Best Children's Book Sets by Age

Dec 13, 2022

One of the most powerful and memorable gifts to give the kids in your life — whether for the holidays, a birthday, or any other special occasion — 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

Whether they're just starting out with Clifford or advancing into graphic novels like Dog Man, nonfiction books like Who Would Win?, or a fantasy series like Harry Potter, these book sets are perfect for every reader.
