The lexile range for the Humphrey series is roughly 640-730... which translates to a 3rd-5th grade reading level, regardless of your child's chronological age. Can younger kids enjoy hearing the story? Of course. Can older kids get a kick out of it? For sure. I just want other people to know that this is a series geared toward the secondary set, 8-11 years old, despite a number of reviews that may have you saying "Wait a minute..."
I started reading (more on that) this book to my son, age 5 and in kindergarten and my 4 year old who never sits still for stories more than a few lines long.
When I lost my voice and could not actually "read" the book, I put it on my Kindle and used the Audible version to complete the book for me. I did sit and listen to the book with my kids as I wanted to hear about Humphrey's adventures. To my surprise and the delight of my children, the reader of the audible version used the same type of voice for each character that I had been using! It was a pleasure to listen to as well as read.
My children and I are looking forward to reading more of Humphrey's adventures!
