This is a great series of books. My daughter loved them and I ordered this boom for my niece who also loved them. Both girls in first grade were having trouble reading. These are "chapter books" but written on a very easy to read level. They feel great about reading chapter books just like their friends but don't get frustrated. A true gift for a struggling reader. On top of that they're great stories that lots of kids will enjoy!!!
