The Bailey School Kids Series

There are over 60 books in this series and kids EAT THEM UP!!! They are great for kids who are starting beginning chapter books because the chapters are short, there are pictures every once in a while (kids at this stage still need a few pictures to give them a break from all that reading) and the kids love to see if the next book in the series has a sillier title than the one they are currently reading….with titles like Vampires Don’t Wear Polka Dots and Goblins Don’t Play Video Games. Children also love series because there are usually some characters that carry through from book to book. This holds true with the Bailey School Kids books with Liza, Melody, Howie and Eddy. Series books are great because children at this stage of reading tend to devour books…they have learned to read and read pretty well and they just can’t seem to get enough of it. (No, this does not hold true for all kids, but in general, it’s a pretty fair statement.) These also make silly and fun read alouds for kids who aren’t quite ready to read these books by themselves or who maybe want to read a little out loud while Mom or Dad share in the reading…it takes some stamina to read chapter books as any early elementary child will tell you. 🙂

There is also another set of Bailey School Kids books if your reader is quite ready for these called Bailey School Kids Jr.
