100 delicious fiction books for kids who read chapters.

Max has been consuming fiction books like the world was on fire lately. So I’ve been scouring the bookshelves for kindling. Here is a list of 100 beautiful, exciting, and enriching books that make great reading for those who enjoy books with chapters. We have read a few of them and will be dilly-dallying our way through others during the coming year.

I started adding links, but then sweet laziness got the best of me. An asterisk indicates that the book is available for free online.
