25 Adventure Series Chapter Books For Young Boys — 11 Comments

  1. These are some great ones for sure! My middle son loves Stonewall and the Guardians of Ga’Hoole. I have Hatchet on the list to try with my oldest son. Pinned!

  2. I can’t believe you found that biography series for only $4!!! I remember reading those as a kid and loving them!! Thanks for this list. Can’t wait to look into these things for my son.

    • Yes, it was a great find! Our thrift store regularly has children’s books for $0.10/each and we have a strong homeschooling community here, so I find a lot of great reading material from like-minded families.

    • I love seeing boys that prefer to read and run and play, rather than watch TV or video games–these are great books to fire up their imaginations and playtime.

  3. This is a great list! My son read a few of these series when he was younger, and more recently the Kingdom series. He also liked the Boxcar Children series, which we were able to borrow from our library.

    • Our kiddos really enjoy the Boxcar children too–but my daughter more than my boys. The Kingdom series is new to us, but it came highly recommended and I agree after reading a few. I get frustrated that some of these are so hard to find.

      • We found the Kingdom series in our church library. The YA collection is, unfortunately, very small because the YAs weren’t borrowing books!

  4. Thank you for this list! We read and read and read some more around here, My older boys are 10 and 12 and finding books for them are getting harder and harder. We like to use the MENSA list and a list called 1000 Good Books. We have read several of the series you have listed above. We love the Max and Liz series and in fact you reminded me to order the next one we need right now. We are in the middle of the Oz series (15 books total).We also like the Red Rock Mysteries, Little House on the Prairie, The Sugar Creek Gang, Anne of Green Gables, Mandie Collection. is having a Homeschool Sale on right now to I am going to get some of the series that are local library doesn’t have.

    • Yes, a couple of the ones you mentioned I have drafted for a girls post–not that my girl doesn’t loves THESE or my boys don’t love THOSE. {smile} The Sugar Creek Gang is on our list but I haven’t read any of them. I love perusing through homeschool curriculum catalogs to see what they recommend for reading as well–that’s where I found Billy and Blaze (K4-1st grade readers) and the Kingdom series. I’ll have to take a look at the Oz series.
