10 Favorite First Chapter Books for Girls

Moving early readers from phonics level readers to chapter books can take some time. I know my own daughter took awhile to make that transition. Something that really helped was keeping some fun books around that were at or below her reading level. And when I found a series she loved I'd order every book in the series from our library!

10 chapter book series to get girls reading

The 10 books listed below are the first in a series of books - perfect for girls who are making that chapter book reading transition (when they are ready to move on from books like Frog & Toad or Little Bear). Some are fluff/twaddle type books but I'm okay with a little twaddle if it will get my daughter reading!

Early chapter books that come as a set/series are great for young readers. The predictable storylines are easy for new readers and can help them develop comprehension skills and reading speed. And kids love a series because they can spend more time with a favorite character while reading through that stack of books!

Here are my favorite chapter books for girls:
