  • 23 Spanish Chapter Book Series Your Kids Will Love

So your kid has mastered Spanish picture books, and they're ready for a challenge? Or maybe you're looking for great family read-alouds in Spanish? We got you covered!

We present to you 23 Chapter Book Series in Spanish that your kids will love. We've got four different reading levels represented so your kids can move from beginner chapter books (level 1) up through the more difficult ones (level 4)!

We focus on chapter book series, for the simple benefit that if your kids like the first book, there are many more to read!

This list is divided into three sections.

  • Original Spanish Series
  • Excellent Translated Favorites
  • Highly Addictive Twaddle*

*“Twaddle” is a term used in Charlotte Mason homeschool circles to denote books that are more like candy than a good meal. The titles under “Highly Addictive Twaddle” are not high quality literature, but many young readers have been enticed to read independently in their minority language through twaddle.

The books in this list are books that our booklist curator, Joey, or myself have personally read aloud to our children. In cases where there are 10+ books in a series, we have not always read every book in the series, however we have read enough to confidently recommend it to you.
