My daughter loved reading. In second grade, reading Harry Potter. Then she picked up the Wimpy Kid series. Hate those. Snarky, minimal actual reading. Had to get her back to real books. Came across the reviews for these and bought the set for her birthday. It took some prodding but once she picked it up and started, she could not put it down. Read it at the breakfast table, read it in the car, before bed. She kept saying how wonderful the story was. Yay!
