20 Adventure Series Chapter Books for Young Girls — 5 Comments

  1. If you can find them (Really old) read the Trixie Beldon series. My mom had the almost complete set and I loved them growing up, but they are hard to find now.

    • My Aunt recommended those also–she thought they were comparable to Nancy Drew. I haven’t see any around here used, but I’ll have to keep my eyes open.

      • You can find them on Amazon pretty cheap for some of them ($6~) then you’ll have 4 or 5 in the row of the series (last I remembered is 30 something books) that will be really expensive to find. If my older sister (20 years older than me, they were given to her) isn’t using them I wonder if she’ll let me “permenantly borrow” them!

  2. Thank you very much for both this post and the one for boys. I read a lot of junk in my childhood and am trying to be more selective over what my kids read, while still encouraging a love of reading.

    My only independent reader at this point is my 12 year old daughter, and she reads with a frenzy. When she was beginning chapter books, she enjoyed the B is for Betsy series by Carolyn Haywood. Now she and I read most of the books from your boy list, along with the Warrior Cats books.

    I’m excited to try and find some of these books that you mentioned.

    • My daughter is in to anything animals too, so I’ve got the Warrior Cat books on my list to check out for her. I try to make a point of keeping up or a little bit ahead of them and I know it can be hard!
