Wholesome Chapter Books for Girls They Won’t Want To Put Down

Are you on the hunt for some awesome reads for your kiddos? Look no further to find some of the best chapter book series for girls!

My oldest daughter loved books from when she was only a few months old.

She’d chew them, rub the pages, and clap clap clap while we read.

We read as part of our bedtime routine, during the day for fun, and before naps. She carried that love of reading with her to this day and can often be found reading chapter books.

Let’s take a look at some great chapter book series for girls…

All it takes is a few moments into book one of this series for your heart to be captivated by this strong and brave group of children. Four siblings to be exact. It’s really a touching story. Oh, and by the way… there are 160 books in this series. So, you’re reader won’t be running out of material anytime soon.
