5.0 out of 5 stars Dickens' classic tale in an abridged version 30 Jun. 2012
By Z Hayes - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My seven-year-old daughter loves to read and I was eager to introduce her to the classics in English literature. I knew the original might be too daunting for her due to the high level vocabulary and have been looking around for a well-written adaptation that retains the essence of the original. The Stepping Stones Classic series of books for independent young readers fit the bill perfectly. These are abridged versions of the classic and are engaging without being too daunting for young readers who might otherwise be put off in attempting to tackle the original versions.

I make it a point to read these books before passing them on to my daughter to ensure she will be able to handle the language on her own and also to check the content. Les Martin has done a commendable job on this adaptation. The language is challenging enough for an independent young reader advancing to chapter books without being too advanced. There are black and white illustrations that engaged my daughter (a visual learner) and kept her attention throughout the two hours (collectively) or so she spent reading this book. The chapters are short and the plot keeps moving along, keeping the reader engaged. Highly recommended for independent young readers ages 6-9.

I liked reading this book with my seven year old. He enjoyed it, too. It was a good adaptation of the book and my son understood it really well.

This is a great books for a little more advanced reader. My daughter is in second grade and read it in about an hour, but she is a pretty quick reader. I was pretty pleased because it was different from what she would usually choose to read but it kept her interest to the end.

I gave this and the other books listed to my grandson and he is reading them. I'm trying to encourage him to get away a little from Star Wars. He needs something else in his life!
