I bought this set for my daughter when she was 9, thinking that she would love the books as much as I did. I was mistaken. She blew through them and moved on. It's not that she doesn't enjoy reading, beause she does. But I think today's kids have so many more exciting things available to them than we did, so it just doesn't have the same effect. For us, these books were our video games of the time!
So my advice to you would be to find just one of these books used, or borrow it at a library, and gauge your child's interest before buying these fairly expensive sets.
He doesn't understand all of the words, but since his is into the story, he can get the word in context. This is a new skill for him. A "must buy" for those reluctant readers!
I remember these from when I was a child. My brother liked them because you can "choose a path to follow" every few pages. It makes kids feel like they're taking part in an ACTIVE adventure... almost like a game. As a result, kids are more willing to sit down with the book and attempt reading.
As a teacher, I've recommended this to so many parents as a means to get children interested in reading. Since reading motivation has a lot to do with confidence, books like this are a bonus because they're active, exciting and use very basic language. Any 4-6 grader should be able to pick these up and enjoy them.
I wish more of these types of books were written.
I wish they had some new ones that would appeal to my daughter. She likes them, but not as much as my son.
