Your kids will LOVE this.
Amazing product and so happy to have received mine as a gift for my daughter. It's extremely helpful in building her reading confidence, the pictures are amazing and perfectly align with the story. When she has trouble with a bigger word I have her look at the picture(s) to aid with sounding it out. She's already taken it to school to show. I will definitely be ordering more copies to pass out to nieces and nephews. Love it!!!!" – Traves G.
