Start Reading a New Series this Summer!

One of the easiest ways to get kids reading throughout the summer is to start them on a series. This way, when they finish one book, they’re excited to get started on the next one. As technology is constantly making reading more accessible, it’s even easier to introduce kids to series that they love and will keep them reading during the coming summer weeks.
 
Instead of taking a trip to the library or the bookstore, apps like NetKids put digital books right at your fingertips. With stories from your favorite characters like Wow! Wow! Wubbzy and Biscuit the Yellow puppy, kids will be able to keep reading with their favorite characters for hours on end! Keep reading for some recommendations on some of the awesome book series inside of NetKids!
