We love these books! WE are just now reading the third one. They are truly wonderful. It is nice because my just turned 5 year old loves reading and all the other chapter books I have tried are too mature for her (saying things like stupid and shutup). These books have a good message for young girls and do not use any "bad" words (as we call them in our house). She can't wait to find out where the "bubbles" are coming from (we are on chapter 9). So glad we found the Zoey and Sassafras books.
