These are our favorite Chapter Book Series for First Graders. Short, easy chapter books for emerging readers and newly independent readers. These books are beloved by 1st graders (kids ages 6 and 7).
In First Grade, kids begin to gain more confidence reading. Often, as they transition from emerging readers to newly independent readers, they get very excited about reading their first chapter books!
These Chapter Book Series for First Graders are easy to read, with larger text and high frequency words. They are less than 100 pages (and many are less than 50 pages), with short chapters. All of the books are illustrated and very engaging!
And, the beauty of book series for kids is that once you find a book that your 1st grader loves, you have more to keep them interested in reading!
Note: Reading levels at this age can vary widely, as kids progress differently.
