teaching4MOAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Books leveled by Grade LevelJanuary 26, 2013teaching4MOAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4These books are directly apart of an online school curriculum, though sold just as the reading book here. The books are good, my children have used most of them. What number is associated with the book is the grade level it would be used at. Although if your kids love to read or you want something extra to read to your children you can use any of them away from the specified level. We did not use the 1st grade level, but found my kids at the 2nd grade level were able to easily read the stories.
The quality of materials of the book is good and fairly durable. The cover is soft but with a coated texture.
