Daughter loves these books! My girl is 9 and began reading these last year, third grade. I love these books because they opened her to the world of reading in her own. She struggled with reading for a bit although she always loved books. With these she will sit and read..and finish in a day or two! But she re-read them and is also into reading other books by Raina. So very thankful for this author, hoping this love for reading stays with her.
