Reviews

“A perfect option for newly independent readers ready to start transitioning from easy readers to beginning chapter books. Transitional readers are always in demand, and this series is a worthy contribution to any collection serving brand-new readers.” —School Library Journal

“Repetition both within and between books helps boost confidence in beginning readers, as do the generous, plot-reinforcing illustrations… Each book allows plenty of room for predictions and provides a glimpse into the great payoff reading can deliver” — Horn Book Magazine
