5.0 out of 5 stars Great books, always checked out in library 16 May 2005
By mdefields - Published on
Format: School & Library Binding
These are really great books. The fact that each book is similar in story, but with different letters really helps those learning to read. My 2 1/2 year old knows that "little ? has a box" and that "I will fill my box." She's just remembering and copying right now, but eventually I know she will recognize those words. I was a children's librarian and we could never keep these books in the library, they were always checked out. I'm writing this review right now because I just found the WHOLE set for only $6.00 at a thrift shop. I couldn't believe it, I just snapped them up so fast and I will definitely keep them for her children, just as the other reviewer is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the Set, Great for Pre-Schoolers and New Readers 19 Dec. 2009
By Elizabeth - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I found this whole set at a thrift store and snapped it up for $9.00. I am so glad I did. These books are lovely. Things I especially liked:

(1) They have short narratives that are appropriate for a new reader to finish in a day, or to be read at bedtime by a caregiver.
(2) All the books follow the same pattern- "Little [letter]" fills a box, gentle, happy fun ensues, and then the words are reviewed at the end.
(3) The children featured are of many different colors and shades, but their books are simple and pleasant, and there are no stereotypes (that I have seen so far).
(4) The print is large and clear.
(5) The illustrations are clear and contain plenty of items for discussion for the pre-reader.

So far, we've only read four or five together, but my child likes them a lot. She can't read but these books provide a nice opportunity to gently reinforce letter sounds and sight words as we read books she enjoys. I'm not surprised that they are often checked out of the library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Series 4 April 2003
By Nancy C Walker - Published on
Format: School & Library Binding
We purchased this series to help my oldest learn to read. His Kindergarten teacher had told us he would never learn to read. The books are simply written and maintain the same plot line through all the books. The main character is always "Little (letter of the book." Each character has a box and decides to fill it with items that start with that letter. My oldest (now 8) reads on the 6th grade level with full comprehension. These books have done wonders in our house. I'm sorry to find that this series is now so hard to come by. I will definately hold on to these for my other children and then for their children.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good learning book 20 May 2009

I ordered this book because a friend gave me the set, but this one was missing. The books are a great compliment to teaching the letters and their sounds, as well as some word recognition. I'm using them for toddlers, so they only absorb so much. But for someone teaching older children, they might really learn how to read from the book.

My mother purchased the series for me as a child, I am now using them for my children. My 6 year old finds them fun and loves to read them to his almost 3 year old sister. I would highly recommend this series..
