Worked for my 6 year old

My 6-year-old is just learning to read. This series is a great first book for level 2 readers to read independently with fluency. He read a few words and then a couple pages and we took turns. Despite his love of books, it’s usually tough to get him to read himself. He actually sounds out these books.

Thank you thank you!

Our daughter has a dual dyslexia and struggles with academically especially with reading. We downloaded the first book and for the first time we heard our 8yr old reading on her own. I was filled with joy and so much emotion that all I could do was cry and hug her. THANK YOU for writing this series and for making it available.
