My 7 year old daughter received the first set of books and we read through them so quickly that we bought the next two sets for Christmas. She loved the books. Each book is about a different child/family on the cul-de-sac so it keeps both girls' and boys' interest. The books also have a Christian slant. The Christian family prays and takes other children to church with them. We loved the books so much that I've purchased the sets for two of my daughter's friends. I highly recommend this series!
These books are great, they really teach your children christian values,the characters don't fight with each other, don't yell to each other, and they are always helping one another and finding mysteries about Jesus. My two boys were asking me to by the next series, they really enjoyed this series!
