I love the I SURVIVED series. I purchased all 22 for a classroom of a new teacher and she said the students are not only increasing their reading. They are so motivated to get to the books that they complete all their other projects and tasks accurately and cooperatively to be able to read more. Wish I could purchase another set for her so that the kids could discuss in teams, but we are working on getting other materials. If you want a kid to read and love it, buy this!
