  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 2/3/2014

    " We finally started reading the series. If you have little ones that are ready to listen to chapter books they are really great. The stories are well written and my kids love them. (ages 3 and 5) We now have 3 other people reading them now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia | 1/18/2014

    " We have started reading this series aloud to my five-year-old son, Ethan. He just eats this series up! When he wakes up in the morning he picks up these books and begs to be read to. The plot is simple, but exciting for young readers. There is nothing offensive in the writing, and it teaches some history and geography as well. There is a full page illustration in each chapter which keeps him engaged and interested. There is some vocabulary that I have to explain, but overall it's easy to understand. There are 40 books in this series and Ethan wants to read them all. "

    " I wish the pace were more exciting for me, and the plot is weak, but Raymend is challenged to read longer conversation without as many pictures. He's interested in the content, structured in a way so he learns, and the chapters are just enough pages to close our bedtime ritual. "
