  1. Thanks for sharing that Alissa! I ordered Circle C Beginnings and Larkyn has started the first book. She's not quite at the independent reading stage though. I'm using it to help her with reading comprehension. She'll read aloud to me and after a page or two we'll stop and talk about what happened. We're really enjoying it!

  2. Cool!!! Kyle loved the series and Kailey ended up reading them too (while waiting for her next series to arrive in the mail!) They go through books so fast it's hard to keep up with new material for them :)

  3. Sounds like these are great reading material for our little sweethearts. Just love to see kids reading.
    Love Mom

  4. That is so great that the kids enjoy reading so much!!! Those all look like really good books for them to read. I have ordered from cbd.com also and really do like their service and prices.
