The Martin Bridge series by Jessica Scott Kerrin is another excellent choice for beginning chapter book readers.
The series has been described as “wholesome” and “refreshing”. Featuring an appealing protagonist, Martin Bridge, the stories are “slice-of-life” adventures in the life of a young boy at home and at school.
In Martin Bridge Onwards and Upwards, Martin’s summer vacation has a rather lonely start when his two best friends are grounded for accidentally damaging an ice cream truck. His mother has a new electronic keyboard, and it seems (to Martin) that she’s always practising on it, with no time for anything or anyone else. Then Laila Moffat – a keener and a know-it-all – joins the Junior Badgers and competes with Martin for badges.
Eventually, Martin learns how to deal with each of these situations, and with his feelings and reactions.
The Martin Bridge stories are entirely realistic and often humorous. In a light-hearted, appealing fashion, they deal with normal, everyday emotions, helping young readers “to recognize and accept our less-than-perfect selves”, while at the same time showing how we can help and improve ourselves too.
