Knowing how challenging it can be to encourage some children to read, we know the deep joy that comes with them finding a character or a story that really speaks to them, that they grow to love, and they want more, more, more of.

You might have yourself experienced a deep and enduring love for a series of books. If you formed a strong emotional connection with the characters in the first of a series, it's a treat to then follow them through multiple books as you become attached to their development, personalities, and journeys.

Book series frequently introduce readers to detailed and immersive fictional worlds. Worlds like that of wizards and muggles in Harry Potter, of Middle-earth in Lord of the Rings or Panem in The Hunger Games.
