Amusing Little Stories for Brand-New Readers Jun 12, 2008
So many of the absolute beginning readers seem to be more a grouping of words than an actual story. My son loves these books, because each one has a progression with a rather satisfying ending for an eight-page story. My son thinks the booklet about Piggy making a sandwich with his father is about the funniest thing he's ever read, and he tells everyone the ending of the story before he gets to it. Also, the illustrations in this series is nice and bright and colorful--much more pleasant to look at than most of the branded phonics readers. These books are giving my son confidence in reading--he has to sound out most of the words, but they are within his grasp--and he really enjoys showing off his skills with these books. I wish the books grew in levels--they seem to all be for absolute beginners--but I'm happy to have these to begin to build a strong reading foundation.
These books are fun! Jan 4, 2005
We get a kick out of the darling characters and illustrations in these books. It is amazing that such easy to read books can have such charming stories.
I bought the whole series of these Brand New Readers books for my daughter because she has felt so successful with them. These are books that she can read and she loves the confidence that comes with that. The characters are cute and the stories are simple but fun. We have read these books many times and always enjoy them.
Great for beginning readers. Dec 1, 2004
My five year-old son absolutely delights in being able to read this book to his Dad. The stories are very amusing- even for adults. The similarities between this father and son and my own are uncanny. Great book for new readers!
Educational and fun. Aug 27, 2002
Another hit from the Brand New Readers series. Each book is funny and fun for my 3 year old to read. The pictures are colorful and interesting. The story lines are simple enough to read yet interesting enough to make my son laugh. A great value!
