One of the big reasons I decided to write the LOL Detective Club Mystery Series is because I wanted to write books that are modern, but have the wholesome goodness of many of my favorite classic series! I wanted to create a fun, high-interest detective series where the children get along and are intelligent, respectful, and model good habits for young readers.
My hope is that one day, my characters of Lottie, Ollie, and Lucy will be as beloved as Laura, Mary, and Baby Carrie.
Without further ado, here are my Top 5 Favorite Wholesome Book Series for Children:
This series is a classic! We love the original book, as well as the series of books that follows. I love how the siblings work together to take care of each other. The characters are resourceful, respectful, and responsible, which are traits I’d love to instill in my children.
Who doesn’t love Jack and Annie? This delightful series takes young readers on a voyage across time and space. The young brother/sister pair work together to help others. The characters interact with significant historical figures and solve problems along the way. A definite must-add to any young child’s library.
Growing up, I dreamed of being Laura from Little House on the Prairie. As a parent, I read the books from Ma’s perspective, and realized just how hard those pioneer days were for the Ingalls family. I love the messages of resourcefulness, simplicity, humility, and trust. These books are ones we read aloud and cherish. I have this box set, and I’ve had so much fun re-reading the stories as an adult.
Did you know that The Magic School Bus has a wonderful series of chapter books? They focus on science-related topics, and are wonderful books for young readers. They have the same humorous appeal as the TV series, and each book includes scientific facts along the way. A fabulous series!
And last, but not least, The LOL Detective Club series is becoming a modern classic. Each book in the series is stand-alone, so you can start anywhere in the series…no problem! It features three homeschooled siblings who travel the world solving mysteries. It’s positive and uplifting, with good morals and zero sassy attitudes. Basically, I wanted my kids to read books that are wholesome and also have an educational message…so I wrote these books! I hope you love the series as much as we do!
What are your favorite wholesome series for kids? Happy Reading!
