I'd like to give this a 5 star "I love it" rating, but the font holds me back. I bought these for my struggling reader. On the whole, this is a great set. The readers are simple, they progress very slowly which allows the reader to gain confidence, and the font is a nice SIZE. However, the handwriting type font means that the spaces are odd. Sometimes two words are so close together, they almost appear to be one word. This throws him for a loop. Now, he does have vision issues (convergence, depth perception, astigmatism, amblyopia, etc..) and wears glasses. Perhaps for a child with perfect vision this would not be such an issue. We will continue to buy Bob Books, because they get the job done. I nice Ariel font would really make my day, though!
