Such cute books!
Reviewed in the United States on February 10, 2016
My daughter is 6 and in first grade. Her reading has really taken off this year, and these books are perfect for her. We have the first three, and she has devoured all of them. She struggles with some words here and there, but for the most part, she can read these on her own. (At school she's reading at an H-I level at the moment. She was F-G when she first read the first Owl Diary book.) The cute colorful illustrations keep the book from being overwhelming, and the diary format is fun. The stories aren't complex, but they aren't too predictable either.
Others have mentioned the made-up words like "flaptastic." Those can throw my daughter for a loop, but she likes figuring them out and thinks they're funny. I think it's a fantastic way for kids to figure things out based on context.
We've already pre-ordered the next book in the series. We can't wait!
