Book series are great for getting, and keeping kids reading. If you know of a Minecraft fan (and who doesn’t!?) this is the list for you. Each of the selections here is a Minecraft Book Series for boys – you know they are going to love these.
These books feature all the goodness of Minecraft with Steve, Herobrine, redstone, hostile mobs such as creepers and zombies, and of course, mining adventures. They are fun to read but we are not exactly talking well-written classic literature here 😉
As I mentioned above these are to be considered fun books. Some of them are self-published or put out by a company that had multiple authors working on the series. There are sometimes typos and grammatical errors in the books but that usually makes for good conversation about quality and how people perceive a book when it includes errors. They are going on our book series for boys list because of content and because they certainly get kids reading.
