This is the book I used when I was in kindergarten and it obviously made an impression on me if I remember it 25 years later. Now that I am teaching my daughter to read I thought I'd give it a try. She loves it! The characters (Buffy and Mack) are adorable, the illustrations are beautiful, the pictures give us lots to talk about, and the reading is very accessable as a first book.

I have tried other books on the market that claim to be level 1 readers, but the vocabulary is too much for a beginner and there is no logical progression of new words. In "Sun up" only a few words are introduced at a time (1-4 at a time) and each new chapter builds on the previous story as well as previous vocabulary. It provides the nesessary repetition to allow children to both master the words and to feel coinfidence as they progress.

I am now a stay at home mom, but taught middle school math before my children were born and, as an educator, I highly recommend this series of books. The HBJ reading series is better than any of the beginning level readers that are currently available commercially. I am planning to purchase the next books in this series.

This is literally the first book I ever read. It taught me how to read 30 years ago. I still remember the whole thing word for word. I was delighted to see it again when my now 14 year old brought it home in Kindergarten nearly 10 years ago.

My older sister read this book to me when I was in kindergarten and I'm now in my 20's and I remember this book after all this time. When I saw that it was here on Amazon I ordered it for my little girl. She liked it and since the words are simple she easily memorized them. I had the same experience when I was about 4 or 5, memorizing the words and being able to "read" the book out loud. It's an awesome book and my daughter likes the illustrations as well. It's perfect for preschool and kinder kids.

This is one of the first books I read in school. Young children will find great joy in Buffy and Mack's adventures. Recommend!
