Elementary Fiction Series Not to Miss!

So many elementary fiction series are published that it’s hard to keep track of them.  However, the nice thing about not finding a series until it already contains several titles is that you don’t have to wait for the next book to be published!

Below are suggestions for great elementary series that you may not have heard about, including some for those new to chapter books as well as for independent readers. The top line of each entry has series information; the second line contains the title, ISBN, and DOP for the first book of the series.

Are there other series that are popular with your young readers?
