Ten brief paperback books for fledgling readers come in the reclosable boxed set of Brand New Readers: Red Set and Brand New Readers: Blue Set, including Edna Dances, about a tutu-clad elephant who spins and leaps; and The Big Fish, in which the tables turn when a mouse goes fishing. With contributions by a variety of authors and illustrators, among them Phyllis Root, Janie Bynum and Scott Nash, the books begin with a note to parents with suggestions for making reading easy and fun. Each page features one line of text and a simple, inviting illustration that helps make the text's meaning clear. The sturdy boxed sets also include a certificate of achievement, a foldout poster, stickers, a guide for parents and teachers, and a blank book in which kids can write and draw.

I purchased both the red and blue sets of Brand New Readers for my 4-year-old. She has been working on letter sounds and sight words. These are the best books we have found for her outside of books designed for use in the school. The simple, predictable stories are great for young children or anyone who is just learning the basics of reading!!

I bought this for my daughter who is going into 1st grade. I think I needed to get the next set up because it seems a bit too easy for her. However the stories are clever, engaging and enjoyable and simple to understand. Even I chuckled at a couple of the books!
