Jack Stalwart Series by Elizabeth Singer Hunt

I have people ask me quite often about beginning chapter books for boys that are appropriate for the early elementary years. There are so many great ones out there and Jack Stalwart is one of my all-time favorites. Jack is a secret agent/spy who travels the globe looking for his older brother Max who is missing while also fighting crime along the way. Why do I love these books so much? There aren’t a lot of books out there for this age group that are in the spy/secret agent genre, it is a great way to get kids excited about and learning about geography since he visits a different location in every book, it’s a series-kids get sucked into series and don’t want to stop reading until they have read them all, it has pictures sprinkled in here and there which is great for kids this age and it has short chapters. They are also great read alouds as well, so you can read them to your child, your child can read them to you, you can take turns or, if they are ready, they can read them on their own.
