  1. Wow, amazing resource- will be buying books from this list!

    • readingwithbean

      Thanks, Jess! Yes- it is a great list to keep bookmarked. There are some great series out…not that there aren’t other great books out, but we all know that once we fall in love with a book we are generally looking for another by the same author!

  2. Great list! And quite a few series I studied when beginning my Dream Seeker Adventure series. Lots of good memories of reading with my own kiddos as I look through the list and a great resource as it’s lined up with reading levels. Thanks!

      Thank you for stopping in, Lisa! I have many fond memories of reading a lot of these books to my classes as well.

  3. I love your list. Can I share it at my workshops?

  4. I think that everything said made a lot of sense. However, consider this, suppose you
    were to create a awesome headline? I am not saying
    your information isn’t solid., but what if you added a headline that grabbed folk’s attention?
    I mean Recommended Book Series, Organized by Reading Level | Reading with Bean is kinda boring.

    You should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they
    create article titles to get viewers to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about what
    you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your website a little bit more interesting.

      Thank you for your opinion- it is appreciated. I have many posts with videos, images and spicier headlines. The page you came upon was actually not a post or article, but a resource (a list of books), so the name is indicative of what it is.

    Could you add a picture so I can pin this on Pinterest please?
