If you are having a hard time getting your child interested in reading, these are a great place to start. The book is fully and adorably illustrated; and is written with a mix of narrative and first person speech bubbles. There aren’t many words per page for a chapter book, so it really boosts the child’s sense of accomplishment to complete a chapter. The stories are simple for a k-2 to understand, and keep them engaged by focusing on relevant topics (school, friendships, parties). A perfect choice for newly independent readers.
