About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I think kids need to learn the horrors of the past for sure, but to a kid who is just barely grasping the concept of death, war and slavery are too much. Perhaps an 8 or 9 year old can read about trench warfare, torn and bloody uniforms and a little boy on the field who looks just like Jack, but the age ranges in the description say ages 6-9.
We bought the set and we'll read them someday, because they are good, but I wish I knew how serious the subject matter would be first.
Top reviews from other countries
There are generally 10 chapters in each book with about 6 pages to read in each chapter. My son currently reads the first page of each, then I read the rest.
There are black and white pictures on roughly every 2nd or 3rd double page.
These book sets are the American (rather than the English) version of the books, but there doesn't seem to be a lot of difference between the two (just the odd English/American word and the fact that the American books are set in Frog Creek woods, Pennsylvania, compared to the English version which is set in Frog Valley woods). Buying the sets (which only come in the American version) can save you a lot of money compared to buying each book individually.
As much as the books are fun fictional stories, the subject matter is factual and educational without children seeing it as such. Each story book does have an accompanying fact book although I can't comment on these as we haven't bought them.
They did run an English version of the books (which are American based) for the first few although eventually they went back to a common series. We're on book 22 now and I believe there's more than 40.
My 4 year old is too young to read them herself, although now she's learning to read at school she does read some of the words. They're probably better suited to 6+ as actual reading material. If like us though you're looking for a good bedtime series to get your teeth into then I can't recommend them enough.
