Great First Reader Apr 17, 2008
This is a great set of first readers. The stories are simple and short so my son is willing to work to read the entire book. The endings are funny, so he enjoys reading them over and over again. These books allow the first reader to gain confidence and learn to love reading.
great book Mar 11, 2007
Found this for my just turn 3 year old son. He loves it and read 5 of them the next morning (with the sticker rewards). He had confident problem earlier on and hesitate to read even he knows how to read for a while. This series certainly boost his confidence.
Great Beginnings! Feb 23, 2007
This series of books is the best I have found for beginning readers! Most other beginning readers are so DRY and BORING. At this stage, reading is hard work, and the Brand New Readers' stories all have clever endings that actually make it worth the child's time and effort to read! The pictures are bright and lively, and provide plenty of clues for tackling the simple words on each page. Just enough repetition and predictability to build confidence, with a funny little twist at the end to make them smile. If you are tired of the drudgery of BOB books and the Dick and Jane series, give these books a try.
Parent of a proud 5 year-old! Jan 19, 2007
These books are awesome. My daughter is now excited about reading. She especially loves adding a sticker to the enclosed chart each time she masters a new book. Great Set!! I'll be purchasing the other sets.
Great first reader books Jan 9, 2007
I found these books to be very fun and easy for my kindergartener to read. She brings home books like these from school but sometimes she has the same one for days. With these books it allows her to read something else so she is not getting bored. She really enjoys them.
