I am using this book as a companion reader to my Open University Course book "Rundblick 6". I have worked through "Deutsch Plus 1 & 2" and I am at a level I can just cope with these "Easy Readers for Children". These readers are not only enjoyable to read but they are a great way of improving "word-power". They are full of very useful phrases and expressions. They are an excellent way of mastering the Imperfect Tense _ which is the main tense used in written German. I have 10 of these readers at the moment which are between Level 2 and 3. I'll be plodding my way through them (with the help of a dictionary) for at least a year! I would recommend them to any "part-time intermediate level student" like myself.
