    Working for us!

    My son is a late reader. He is a creative,humorous kid. He also has a short attention span....therefore the books I used with his older brothers didn't work for him. This is part of why I now homeschool -the ability to adapt to each kid and their personality. My son finds these extremely funny. He reads these without anyone asking him. Not your typical reading books, but they are working for us.

    Enjoyable read but disappointed.

    Purchased this set for my five year old son who loved the stories. These books are good for a beginning reader book but not very educational. They are hard cover but paper quality is poor and transparent.

    My 7 year old son really enjoyed these stories. He doesn't usually "enjoy" reading out loud to me, but as soon as he finished Blue, he went and got Bus and started it without having to be prompted. I agree with some of the others that the grammar in these books isn't great, but, I like that he is seeing that he can enjoy reading.

    Even though I would not say that these books are good for learning to read per se, they are fun to read. They are engaging for kids and parents alike. My 7 year old son really likes the Life of Fred series. After buying this set, we just bought the second set of readers and Life of Fred: Dogs. Eventually, I plan to buy set #3 and the second set of elementary math books. I'm planning on keeping all of our Life of Fred books for the younger siblings and beyond. Love that they are quality hardcover copies. My only complaint is that the author does not always use complete sentences.
