"Not only do [these] books provide a solid grounding in phonics and sight words, theyre actually fun to read." bilingualmonkeys.com
"The best thing about these stories is that the illustrations and stories are funny, without being cutesy. They'll appeal to boys and girls, and they'll also appeal to older kids who are working to learn phonics. They have clear story lines (a beginning, middle and end)so kids read to understand the silly story, not just hear the words." greatkidbooks.blogspot.com
"[The] author does a fantastic job of writing a coherent story using a limited selection of words. The stories and pictures are quite entertaining, and the vocabulary progression is excellent." blog.montessoriforeveryone.com
