21 Fantasy Reads to Share With Your Children

When I had kids, one of the things I looked forward to was being able to share the things I love with them. As an 80’s/90’s kid I got excited when they rebooted My Little Pony and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I loved when my kids were old enough to start watching the Harry Potter movies, when they got obsessed with slime (Gak if you kick it old school), and I am still working on turning them into comic book nerds. But what I want to impart to them the most is my love of reading. As a kid reading was my escape and it has always been a major part of my life (both of my kids are named after characters from some of my favorite books). I want my kids to have that same relationship with books. Not only will it help them academically, but it will make them more well-rounded people. And since fantasy is my go-to genre, I have found some books that are not only great reads but are sure to get kids hooked. Comment if you have any other recommendations!
