My 1st grade son absolutely loves this series, and is anxiously awaiting more releases! I'm so glad that Scholastic has begun this new line of early chapter books- they are perfect for early readers who are anxious to read "cool" books!
My son really looks up to his older brother (in 3rd grade) who reads lots of exciting books- Harry Potter, Percy Jackson... yet he is not quite at that reading level yet. This series is perfect for a kid who wants to read cool books, yet isn't quite at that Young Adult reading level yet.
We can't wait for Scholastic to release more books in the Branches series!
