Children's Series For All Ages

There are few series of children's books that can be enjoyed by any age group, but nonetheless the do exist. These three series are ones that I still enjoy now that I'm an adult, and they'll fill anyone with similar nostalgia they give me.
- The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall are about the adventures of the Penderwick sisters, each book highlighting a different aspect of growing up and clinging to childhood. The series also delves into other issues such as loss and finding self confidence.
- Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger grows darker with each book, albeit being a children's series. These books really get into the nitty gritty of what's good or bad, and what's in between and includes a commentary on society today through fantasy.
- Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan. It's rare to have a series that can be educational and easily enjoyable, but learning about Greek mythology is really intriguing in this series, as well as in Riordan's other series that delve into other mythologies.
