These are about what you expect them to be. Little, super thin, square paperback books in a little box with a handle. I teach first grade and bought these as a holiday present for my kiddos. I made them all personalized bookmarks and let them each pick out a book as their present. Most of them are right around a C reading level, which is why I picked this box. They loved it! The box also comes with a little insert in it for parents, so that was pretty cool.
