Reviews - What do customers think about Brand New Readers Red Set (Brand New Readers)?

Whole language readers  Feb 19, 2008
This is a "whole language" reading set. There isn't necessarily anything wrong with that, but it doesn't say that anywhere, and if you're looking for phonics, I recommend you look elsewhere, such as the Bob books. I gave these to my daughter shortly before her fourth birthday because she started to memorize whole words, and with some help, she read them on her own. The stories and illustrations are entertaining. However, as far as teaching reading goes, we've had just as much success using simple books we already have as well as borrowing the many whole word easy readers from the library. I wouldn't bother spending money on more of these fancy sets.

One thing that did bother me was the advice given in the teaching guide- encouraging children to guess at words- "Look at the picture. What would make sense?" I just don't believe in teaching children to read that way. Even if the books are entertaining, I can't give a four or five star rating when the teaching guide offers that kind of advice.

Brand New Readers really work!  Feb 12, 2008
These sets contain 10 books that each tell a very short story with a funny ending through repetition. Illustrations are done well, characters are memorable. Child feels a sense of accomplishment as the set contains a chart with stickers for each book completed, a certificate of completion and a "BLANK" book for the child to author/illustrate their own book. Set also contains a parent guide. Our son loves these books... highly motivated him into a reader. He is the top reader in his kindergarten class and now has the love of books/reading that will pull him along through his education at a heightened pace.Brand New Readers Red Set (Brand New Readers)
Parent of a proud 5 year old!  Jan 19, 2007
I love these books. My daughter loves these books. She has a new-found confidence and doesn't groan anymore when I suggest we read a book. She actually asks me if we can read them, which rarely happened before. She is now very proud of herself(as am I) and is so excited about reading! I am very glad I decided to get this set and plan on ordering the other sets as well.
These Work!  Nov 23, 2006
I love these readers and, more importantly, my daughter loves them. She has been reading these since she was 4 1/2. The stories are fun to read and the illustrations guide the reader to success. You will be so glad that you purchased these readers for the child in your life! Have fun reading together.
A great beginning for your child  Apr 1, 2006
I think these books are one of the best things for new readers ever. My son was intimidated by reading--he had the capacity, but wanted like so many overacheivers to be able to read immediately, and when he realized it just didn't work that way decided to give up.

Then a friend gave me a four book Brand New Reader set featuring Mouse (Mouse has remained my son's favorite BNR character). The introduction tells the parent exactly what to say, and the child has a heads up about what the story is about. The pictures make it apparent what the words will be, and yet they learn (with a gentle reminder or two) to look carefully at each word and sound it out.

I bought the BNR Orange set recently and was thrilled by what was inside. There are ten funny books (the humor is what makes these books so much fun), ten stickers and a chart to put them on once the child has read each book by him/herself. There is also an acheivement certificate for once they have accomplished reading all ten, AND a blank BNR book for them to write their own story in. My son just drew pictures on each page, and then I wrote what he wanted the words to be, and I was stunned by how clever it was, and how it seemed to fit the format of the BNR books, funny and simple. It seems that BNR is helping him not only learn to read, but to understand the concept of author as writer, illustrator as artist, and story structure (beginning, middle, end).

I can't wait to start the blue series!

(note, we are also using the book "Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons." I cannot recommend this book enough, we are only on lesson 10, and already my son is sounding out words easily and rhyming. It is a brilliant program, but beware, parents, of skipping the introduction. I did so, and had to start over once I actually read it, as the techniques are different than any I've seen. For instance, silent letters in a word (such as the silent e) are at first presented smaller than the other letters, as well as not having a dot beneath them, so the child skips the sound but sees it, and is not surprised later on when it shows up in full size. I highly recommend both Brand New Reader books and 100 Easy lessons in combination, so that while the child is learning lifelong reading skills, he also has experience with the satisfaction of reading a book by himself. By the end of 100 Lesson children ought to be reading at a second grade level; I will review this book again once finished to advise whether this is true or not.)
