Our Favorite Read-alouds in Our Homeschool (Children’s Series)

Welcome to part three of my series of read-alouds we have enjoyed in our homeschool. Today I’m sharing children’s series. There are other series which my kids enjoy on their own, but these are the ones we have read together…


Marcus was obsessed with The Magic School Bus for most of his elementary years. He loves science. Besides reading the Scholastic books, we watched as many episodes of the science series as we could.


The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart is a wonderful series about four very talented and bright children who make up a team of young agents! Each adventure is exciting and full of unexpected plot twists.


The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. One of the best children’s series ever in my opinion! Marcus gets to reread The Magician’s Nephew this year with his online English class which focuses on themes and symbols.


Nightmares by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller is a newer series we have discovered and really like. Check it out if you haven’t already.


Marcus and I both treasure this series! The Guardians of Childhood features famous legends St. Nicholas, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, Sandman, and Jack Frost. The delightful movie Rise of the Guardians was based off this series.

♥ Have you read any of these series with your kids? What is your favorite children’s book series? Thanks for reading! ♥

  1. We loved the Narnia series for read aloud. We also loved “A Long Way from Chicago” and its sequel “A Year Down Yonder”. Great characters. We enjoyed the “In Grandma’s Attic” and “Shakespeare Stealer” series as well.

    Mine are older now, I miss the read aloud days. I only have one who will listen, and she is sad because we don’t have the family to listen with her anymore.

    God bless!

  2. Right now I’m reading out loud to #1 Grandson Mr. Popper’s Penquins by Richard, and Florence Atwater, and Three Tales of My Father’s Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett.

    They’re fun reads, and he’s really enjoying them. I think I’ll read him the Chronicles of Narnia, or The Wrinkle in Time books next. I haven’t decided which. 🙂

    This list of yours is wonderful!
