A great book set help kids build upon the reading skills they’ve learned this year — and feel more confident in those skills. Book sets are particularly effective over the summer, when it's important for kids to keep reading, learning, and growing.
“After reading one book on a topic, young readers feel more comfortable reaching for the next, because they’ve built knowledge on the topic and key vocabulary,” says Karen Baicker, the publisher for Family and Community Engagement (FACE) at Scholastic. “Books that seemed out of grasp before quickly become more interesting and less daunting.”
The hand-picked book sets on this list are known to engage kids, teach new vocabulary, and turn even the most reluctant readers into avid book lovers. They range from early reader books that help kids make the transition from picture books to chapter books, to more complex books that help older kids advance their established reading skills.

Another great way to keep kids learning this summer is to join the Scholastic Summer Reading program. It's designed to develop lifelong readers by encouraging reading for fun during the summer.
