In the age of cell phones, iPads, and video games, it can be easy to forget one of life’s greatest pleasures: reading. Summer is the perfect time to get your kids back into reading for fun, and what better way to keep them occupied longterm than to get them started on a book series. Following a series can help your child become invested in the story, encouraging them to continue reading. Who needs Netflix when you’ve got 10 books on deck?
