I got her a set of these for Christmas. We would switch off reading pages because it's hard to get her to sit and focus on the story. A few books in and her turn was getting quicker and quicker. Then she got to the point where she knew all but 1 word every few pages. Next thing I know we're on book 8 and she just takes it to her room and reads half the book on her own without me, she said. There was tremendous growth in her reading skills by reading this series, she said. I would highly recommend this to parents of children who need that extra bit of encouragement to read.
   Engaging for every age group
My son absolutely loves them, said Cara. He is a pretty early reader, so sometimes books can be over his head or too scary for him, but he was obsessed with them from the beginning. He let our 9 year old neighbor read them who wasn't really interested in reading and his mom said it was pulling teeth to get him to read chapter books. He couldn't put them down. His mom couldn't get him to play outside because he wanted to read this series, so she had to keep him inside. My niece also borrowed this series and is also obsessed and wants to start a book club to talk about this series. I cannot say enough good things about it. It has all the makings of a hit book, and kids of all ages rave about it!
   My 8 year oldest favorite book
The book was recommended to me by my son who claimed he hated it. She added that he is "a very active and energetic boy, so she was shocked to see him read it in 1 day."
   Encouraging my child to read
My daughter is supposed to be reading for 15-20 minutes a day during the summer. It's almost like she's just trying to get it over with and get back to playing, she said. This is a series that I'm excited about, Bernadette Peters said. She finishes one chapter and doesn't want to stop. I barely pay attention to the story, but she's really in it, so I have to give it five stars, Tunick said.
   Great book for kids!
This book is truly exceptional, said Dr. Goin. My son absolutely loves it. It's hard to stop reading this book. We are delighted to be back with you all again this year, Simon and Schuster said in a statement. Thanks for the support! This is the first book my son has read alone. I have been looking for something like this for a while.
   Great Start to Chapter Books!
My 7yr old son has a difficult time reading and comprehending what he's reading. In two days, he was done and begged for the other books. He also said he'd love to see the sequel, "The Fifth Estate." Next week we expect to see 6 more ships arrive.
   So well done
We love the series. It has to be a challenge to write simply constructed yet engaging prose for transitional readers, but this is a seamless transition, he said. If your child is ready to move beyond reading level 5, this is a beautiful read aloud.
   Great read aloud book to children
I have read the entire series and I am a librarian. It's just that they can't wait each week to see what happens with Tag, Skyla, and Blaze. Some students have bought their own books to reread at home. According to the book's Web site, "Parents have told me that their child is grabbing the books and, in some cases, trying to read them by themselves."
   Great for readers who need to ease into chapter books
My son is a struggling reader, mostly because he doesn't find a lot of subject matter interesting and also because he has attention issues that make it hard for him to make it through larger chapter books. The books really helped him to bridge the gap between little kid books and more intimidating chapter books, plus he loves the subject matter.
   An Alright Book that Could Do its Job
I found the next two books while browsing through another series. I decided that reading a book about improbable friends wouldn't be that bad, Graham said. I thought the main protagonists were both kind and heroic, he said. Also, I think all the illustrations are well done. Added to the book, I liked the addition of a reading guide at the back. Not for its simplicity, that's a good step for children to build reading comprehension, he said. The biggest reason for this is the description of the bat by Charles Darwin. There was no immediate reason for the two to have beaks.
