The characters are all animals, which help engage the child. The pictures are also simplistic so they don't get distracted from the words. Each book contains a full story that will bring satisfaction at the end. I love how there are "Words to Learn" inside the front cover because it gives you an idea what to expect and focus on before you begin reading. The consistency of the writing style reinforces the child's ability to learn the words.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this set to all emerging readers. Whether they're struggling or just starting, this set will help them stay focused and learn new words as they go along.
