Gift Idea: Book Series Sampler

Book Series Sampler - Gift for Kids | Let's Explore

Natalie loves reading book series – she’s just like me! I am always looking for new series that will interest her and thought a book series sampler would be a great gift idea for many kids (and even adults) on my list.

To make a book series sampler, just gather the first book of 3-5 different series that you think the gift recipient might like. Tie a big ribbon around the stack of books or tuck them into a tote bag for on-the-go reading.

You could also include a bookstore gift card for purchasing the next book in a favorite series.

Here are some chapter book series for kids to get you started:

Beginner Chapter Books

Mystery Series

Princesses, Fairies, and Other Girl Stuff


For Older Readers

Do you know a young reader that might enjoy a book series sampler like this? Feel free to chime in with your own kids’ chapter book series suggestions, too – the more the merrier! :)

Betsy-Tacy is a must! Those will carry a little girl all the way to adulthood, too.

We like the old Raggedy Ann chapter books, Winnie the Pooh, Haffertee Hamster books, and In Grandma’s Attic. :)

I always love your book recommendations. We’ve read all the Mercy Watson books (thanks to your suggestion) and my 5 year old loves them! I was excited to see that they can be bought as a gift set on Amazon.

Love this idea! Books are the best gifts.
My daughter likes the Marguerite Henry books, the Thoroughbred series (there are 72 books!), and Janette Oke books.
And my oldest son just loves to read about dinosaurs and Star Wars. :)

This is a really great idea. I’m doing something similar for my preschooler this Christmas, and I have a couple of the books in the photo. And since mine all come from the thrift store, they’re worn in the same way :) .
