Recommended - particularly for the very early reader who will be motivated by the fact they read a "big book". Liked its innocence too, a lot of the reading program books now seem to have different values, people are always getting in trouble or laughs at other's expense. I've learned to watch out for ideology!
In this book children are children.
My generation was taught to read through the pages of Janet and John and their associated story books. By the time I was eight I was reading Enid Blyton's Brer Rabbit stories and also Just Like Jennings. As a university graduate in English grammar I owe the origin of my reading AND spelling skills to Janet and John. Sad to find that this invaluable learning source is now regarded (probably by the humourless and paranoid 'politically correct' brigade) as 'Humour').
