I have a 1st grader and 4 yr old. They beg me each night to keep reading. I don't know what I'm going to do when we finish this series. This ha been excellent motivation for my 1st grader to want to read, read, READ. The characters match the description of my daughter's and friends perfectly. The look and the personalities. These books are a treasure to find that sparks many conversations about what could possibly happen next. And Mommy has enjoyed the read as well.
