6 Awesome Chapter Book Series For Young Girls

One of the things I'm most proud of this homeschool year, is how much my daughter's reading has improved. She moved from reading mostly simple children's picture books and EZ readers to reading whole chapter books!

In this post I will share 6 great chapter book series for young girls, all approved by my daughter.


Billie B. Brown

The Billie B. Brown series by Sally Rippin was my daughter's very first favorite chapter book series. It's about a spunky little girl named Billie who likes soccer and hanging out with her best friend Jack.

(Jack also has his own series if your looking for a fun early chapter book series for boys.)

The language is pretty simple, the text size is big, and it has lots of cute illustrations, making it a great series for making the transition from picture books to chapter books.

Fairy Ponies

The Fairy Ponies series by Zanna Davidson is about a young girl named Holly who discovers a secret world full of magical flying ponies. 

The illustrations in this series are just gorgeous! 

Judy Moody

The Judy Moody series by Megan McDonald is one of my daughter's newer favorites. This series is about a feisty little girl named Judy. Judy is opinionated and sometimes moody but also sweet and charming. 

The Little House Collection

Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House Collection is one of my all time favorite series from my childhood and my daughter loves them as well. 

Written about her childhood as a pioneer on the great plains of the American midwest, Laura's Little House books are a beautiful look at life in the late 1800's.

Nancy Clancy

The Nancy Clancy books by Jane O'Connor are a chapter book series staring Nancy from the Fancy Nancy picture book series. My daughter loves the Fancy Nancy picture books so moving on to the Nancy Clancy chapter books was an easy transition. She was excited to have some longer more in debth stories about one of her favorite characters.

In this series, Nancy is now in 3rd grade and stars her and her best friend Bree.

Princess Ponies

Princess Ponies by Chloe Ryder is another series about a secret magical pony land. This series is about a little girl named Pippa who has been recruited to help save the magical land of Chevalia. Along with the pony princess, she must find the 8 stolen magical horseshoes before it's too late. 

Each book in the series comes with a horseshoe charm for a charm bracelet. 

What are some of your favorite series for young girls?
