Year 2 (P3 in Scotland) is when a lot of children will start reading for pleasure on their own for the first time. Whilst they will (and should!) still enjoy picture books, many will also want to read chapter books and both are important in building a love of reading.
Series are a great way to get kids this age reading and there are loads of brilliant illustrated chapter books that will capture their imaginations too.
Discover our recommendations below, there's adventure, magic, excitement and of course lots and lots of silly jokes too.
