As soon as these came in the mail I showed them to Little Bean, and he was excited to look at them and start reading. He read through two books right away, and was quite possessive over the set, which told me he was excited about these books.
The set of 10 books comes in this nice little case that has a magnetic closure, and each book is slipped into a little clear pocket, almost like a CD case:
If you are looking for an alternative to Bob Books, or just more leveled readers, these are perfect! They were not expensive either--I paid $11.55 and chose free shipping. For those looking for readers that are appropriate as companions to 100 Lessons, Little Bean is 60% through 100 Lessons, and these readers were perfect for him--not too easy, and not too challenging.
I'm always looking for an example of the kind of text in leveled readers because it seems that many books that say they are phonics based really aren't appropriate for beginning readers. So here's a sample of the book Little Bean read today:
"The cub. The big cub. The big cub sits. The big cub sits on a rug. YUCK! The big cub sits on gum! The big cub sits on pink gum. The big cub tugs at the gum. The big cub tugs the gum off. Yum! Yum!"
