I got this book after hearing good reviews from a Homeschooling Blogger I really like. Our daughter is five and is already reading a few things on her own. We would read a chapter out of this book each night and the next day before we'd start a new chapter my daughter would tell me what we read the night before. She would recite what happened with no hesitation, and this is how I know she really enjoyed the book.
