Purchased for my 7 year old- 2nd grader because we started allowing him to watch wrestling over the summer. He struggled through reading in 1st grade and I didnt want him to loose everything over the summer. He was able to breeze throught his book because of the reading level so it might be more age appropriate for a 6 year old/1st grader.
John Cena is his favorite of favorites so this was a great light biography for a child. It touched on his early years and how he got started in wrestling. There were some great pictures and lots of cool highlights in his career thus far. We ordered the other 3 DK wrestling books and have Rey Mysterio on pre-order. Hopefully they'll come out with a few more!

Parents are always trying to find some hook' to get their children to read more - this is one of them!
My 7 year old is enthralled with the WWE - not so much in school work. But when I bought a few of the DK readers (in subjects that he likes), he took to it like a fish to water! I've never HAD to make him read it to me - he forces me to sit down so he can read it to me over and over again. Gotta love it!
Only setback I can see is that the WWE books are not all on Level 2. We have Cena, Undertaker, and Triple H - and they are not all Level 2. Would be nice if DK reader offered modified versions of this series on levels 1, 2 and 3.
I Highly recommend this book for anyone with a child who is learning to read. Even my 2 and 5 yr olds like the book due to the BIG colorful pictures in it.

Perfect gift for a 9 year old's birthday party. He was reading it as we left! I do have to say he is a very good reader and it was a bit below his reading level, I think, but it didn't matter, he just couldn't wait to read about his hero.
