Reviews - What do our customers think?
My six year old begged to read more.  Oct 2, 2008
I don't write reviews very often, but I felt I needed to with this book. My son is beginning first grade this year, and is reading short words, but he doesn't like to sit very long. It is a struggle to get him through more than one book a day. However, with this set I can usually get him to read through at least two stories. And today, when he discovered the stickers he could earn for reading, he read every book in the set. I was amazed! Fun stories with fun pictures. (I also like Bob books - but he likes these better:)
Excited to Read  Feb 13, 2008
My daughter had been struggling to read more fluently so I got the Bob Book Series for her & it was such a struggle to get her to want to read them. A teacher working in a bookstore recommended this series & it was amazing how excited she was to read to me every night. We quickly went thru the Prereader & Level 1 & 2 & now I am waiting for the level 3 books to arrive. They are funny & the illustrations are nice & colorful. Loves putting the stickers on when she has finished the story. They made a big difference in her confidence & she can't wait to read them. Highly recommeded as a confidence builder!!
great reading tool  Jan 14, 2008
This was a great way for my five year old in helping him read. He was so excited about learning how to read on his own and getting stickers for completing each book. I love these books and am planning to but levels 2 & 3.
The BEST beginning readers!  Oct 18, 2007
I highly recommend these books by Nora Gaydos for parents who are teaching their child to read at home. My son has known the sounds of all the letters and has been able to sound out three and four letter words with short vowel sounds since he was three. I thought he would be an early reader, but at age 5 now he has not liked any books we have tried as beginning readers until now. He became so bored with the Bob Books, McGuffey's primer, Step into Reading books, etc... that he started pretending he didn't know the sounds anymore. He still loved me to read to him, though, but he would not try to read by himself.

Then I ordered these books a few days ago and amazingly, he was so intrigued by the illustrations, he sat down and read three of them straight through to me. He has never been a fan of stickers, but for some reason, the incentive to place a sticker inside each book when you finish reading it really has appealed to him. We got the Animal Antics and the Playful Pals sets two days ago and he has already read five of the books three times each by himself! I am so amazed and excited that he is happy about reading again.

These books are very well done. They follow a good phonics program, with funny stories that actually make sense. The illustrations are superb and really get the child interested in what is happening in the story. I wish I could give these more than five stars! I also recommend the other Level 1 books called Animal Antics. The books are a little bigger but the stories are different and continue in the same vein as these Playful Pals. Both sets contain 10 readers each. You could do the first five of each set first, which are easier, and then the second five of each set. Happy Reading!
Very motivating for the child who just wont!!!!!  Sep 10, 2007
my son now six has known his letter sounds since he was four and just would not be willing to sit down and read even the simpliest of books to me, and I have a lot of emergent readers and leveled readers. This was the set That did it for us. He begs to read these books, he thinks they are so funny and they are wrote in a way that works for him. These books really concentrate on phonics and not very much on sight words, so be prepared to back up this set with books that use more sight words, like "go dog Go" and "Are you my mother" from DR. Suess.
If your child is resisting reading this set just might do it for you. 10 pages per book with a couple words to start and building onto the sentence with each page, encourages child to sound out a new word or two each page, but uses lots of familiar words from the previous page to help the child stay motivated and unlike other phonics readers these stories make sense and are fun to read.

This set focuses on consenant blends and is the second in the set of level one books about animals, the other level one set uses mostly 3 letter words, while this one has a larger variety of four letter words, but still using short vowel sounds. Words like: splat and flat.

The level 2 set works on long vowel sounds
and the level 3 set continues to add new letter combinations.
