Not what I expected at all. The books are VERY small for the price and the photos are deceiving. These are miniature and are difficult to read to the kids. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Adam Eaton
These books are so small you can't even read! Very misleading!Published 4 months ago by Julie Cochran
I purchased this set without looking at the dimensions, so that's on me. I'm not sure why they would even make books this small. The print is barely legible.Published 4 months ago by Ruben Carbonell
The writing in these miniature books is so small that you can hardly read it. Go for a larger book. The stories are cute when you can actually see the words.Published 7 months ago by tanya moyer

The "mini" book is much smaller than expected. Each book is probably 2.5"x2.5". Too small for my 2 year old godson to enjoy.Published 8 months ago by jessica knopp
