Chapter book series recommendations???

I want to read my 3 1/2 (almost 4) year old son some chapter books. We know about the Magic Treehouse books- any other ideas?? I don't know anything about the Dragon Slayer Academy books for him- are those okay subject-wise for a young boy?

We would like a series type so there are many books to continue reading- thanks!!!

  • I know he's a boy, but what about the Little House books? My son is 4 and likes hearing his sisters read those.

  • Wizard of Oz Books

    Narnia Books

    The Boxcar Children Books (not continuous though)

    Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass

    Aren't there more books than just Peter Pan? I think that may be considered a series.

  • Classics like Treasure Island and Swiss Family Robinson!

    My DS is 6 and would tell you Captain Underpants and Sir Fartsalot...::sigh:: ...He's a boy

  • I really enjoyed Beezus and Ramona by Beverly Cleary, Mrs. PiggleWiggle which is about a magic old lady that cures children of stuff like talking back, and then Bunnicula which is about a bunny that this cat and dog thinks is a vampire. Really cute.

  • I haven't heard very many people even mention this series, and it may be very hard to obtain the books, but I LOVED reading The Happy Hollisters when I was growing up. They are a family of young children seeking mysteries and adventure.
