I'm not sure why the author wrote her books with a main character of a Kindergartner. I purchased these for my for K twins, but they are just learning to read picture books, and this type of book is too advanced for them. (Although many K's are reading, I don't know of any reading chapter books.) I do have an older daughter reading chapter books, but she isn't interested in books written about a Kindergartner girl, because that seems too young for her. It would have been nice to have the character be 6 or 7, matching the reading level of the books.
I can't stand the poor grammar of Junie B. Jones and was despirate to find something else!! That's Nat is perfect!!! Same crazy antics but loving Christian family discipline and complete sentences using whole words!!! I always recommend That's Nat to families with readers who are getting ready for their first chapter books!
I purchased this book for my 6 year old who is a struggling reader. We read one chapter together every night at bedtime. She loved it so much we have asked our local librarian to purchase more in the series.
I bought three of these books for my little sister for Christmas. She was in 1st grade and just learning how to read. I had wanted to get her some Christian books that she could start reading and these were perfect! They are beginning chapter books that include good Christian virtues but are written from a little girls perspective. I could not have asked for a more perfect gift! These books truly apply the Bible to real life situations. I would recommend these books to anyone looking for a positive, Christian easy-reader book.
