Cute, interactive book for children ages 1-5. Already have the Ten Monkeys on the Bed book by the same publisher. My one year old granddaughter LOVES it!

I purchased these books for my ten year old granddaughter. They are beautfully packaged and the she will enjoy have the entire set. I'm confident that she will share them with her younger sister, and maybe her own children someday. Teaching our children to appreciate books is a great investment in the future.

My ten year old daughter brought home a couple of Cam Jansen books from the school library and was actually reading!!! So, I checked out Overstock and ordered 7 more for her. She used to struggle with reading and I knew if she could just find something she would enjoy, it would help. It has and this is the first year she isn't getting extra help in reading at school! Great books for young kids.

I have a ten-year old grandson who is an avid reader, and I must admit that I have to be particular about his books. Sometimes he's not even aware that they may contain contents that is not age appropriate. This book and the other (Wimpy Guy) are both excellent reads for young children. It may sound like it's for a baby, but actually it's not. Those are stories that are interesting to young people, even pre-teens. Thank you so much.

I order three books and was so delighted when they were delivered, I think if you invest ten dollars and purchase one you will want more, I hope to meet the President one day and have him sign one, I wish I had the money buy one for each child. The book is well written a illustrated for children to become inspired to become great people in one way or another.

I would give this series TEN STARS if I could. I did purchase the entire set of CD's, the book and the test booklet. My daughter looks forward to every chapter. During 'study' time for other subjects or simply cleaning and performing chores around the house, I play the discs and everyone around can't help but listen and be engaged in the story. This also helps my child pronounce the words or the kingdoms, rulers, etc better. Both adults find the book series as entertaining as our children find them. I look forward to purchasing all the other sets and highly recommend The Story of the World to all children.

My son brought Harry and his friends into our house years ago, and raved. My friends were raving, their children were raving, so I read the first three and got hooked. No way could I not finish. And even though as an adult, this is not my usual fare, the plot and characters grip you from the first chapter and hangs on long after you've closed the book. The books become increasingly dark as they move forward in the wizarding world; this is not an early elementary age series, but what a brilliant mind this fabulous author has. My ten year old has devoured them all, reread all four or five times, but I still won't let him see the movies after number three. PG -13 is the minumum... too much death, anger, violence, mature themes. This is a must-read series. If for no other reason, than to have a clue what the rest of the world is talking about....

I enjoyed this book because it was very insightful and life-changing. I bought it for all of my grown children. Miss Ten Boom gives us an intimate view of her family before the war, while she was involved in hiding Jews and after she was incarcerated and sent to 3 different prisons. The wonderful and amazing part was her attitude about her extreme circumstances. I saw her change and grow through her faith in Christ and dependance on Him and how she and her sister shared their faith with others. It is uplifting, human, and touching without being preachy.

And so it is with a heartfelt post script, that author Rebecca Ann Collins closes her ten-book series, The Pemberley Chronicles, with "The Legacy of Pemberley." I have been thrilled to be privy to the lives of the characters that Collins both borrowed from Jane Austen and created on her own. With my "extended Derbyshire family," I’ve experienced many emotional highs and lows. I will say that early-on in the series, Ms. Collins dropped a bombshell, which left me devastated for quite some time. And it was not without some feelings of PTSD that I opened her subsequent volumes (constantly fearing what additional surprises might lie ahead). Unlike some of the earlier books in the series, "Legacy" took me a good while to read… not because the plot moved slowly, and not because it’s Holiday Season, which is always very busy. I think that I subconsciously prolonged my reading, because I was not yet ready to say goodbye. "Legacy" brings us back into the daily lives of our friends the Darcys, Bingleys, and Fitzwilliams, as well as their now grown children and grandchildren. Sadly, we must bid farewell to some of our favorite characters. But the story does not become weighed-down by their losses. Instead, Ms. Collins once again shows a gentle sense of humour, and once again reveals herself to be a standard-bearer for redemption and comeuppance. As it ties up nearly every loose end that had heretofore existed in The Pemberley Chronicles, "Legacy" serves as almost a homily for rewarding the good and punishing the bad. Those who sow the seeds of pride, prejudice, and greed, are ultimately dealt the fates that they deserve. And those characters whose lives are ruled by the values of love and loyalty, who spread good will and serve as role models for the community are rewarded with happiness and contentment. We see also that the younger generation has both the character and skills to continue the great traditions that are the real “Legacy of Pemberley.” On nearly the last page of the book, series patriarch Fitzwilliam Darcy sums it up best as he addresses his wife of many years: "I think, Lizzy my dear, we may safely entrust the future of Pemberley to our children. Do you not agree?" Needless to say… she agrees.

I bought this book as a Christmas present for my ten year old and was mortified when I opened the package. The only thing that holds true is that it is a hardcovered book other than that it is worthless. It has very few pages in it and is NOT worth the money.

As a school librarian, I look for books that will hold the students attention. The younger students loved this book. Like other Dr. Seuss books, it rhymes. This reinforces what they are learning in the classroom. They love the bright colors and the competition between the animals to see who can balance the most apples on their heads. It also opens a discussion on whether we could balance apples on our heads.

This is part of a series of books. My grandsons have three, and they love for me to read them over and over. I purchased the rest in the series for Xmas. I know they'll love them too.

This was a perfect gift for my 3yo nephew... he has had it for a week and only set it down for about ten minutes the entire time. I wish I could find more books with handles for him now!

I live in an area where it is not so easy to find Captain Underpants books even at our local bookstores. I was pleased to find this collection at such a fantastic price. These books are what convinced my ten year old son that reading was actually enjoyable so I snagged this set right away. He was so happy to get them and read them right away.

I love Overstock.Com. I needed a gift for my ten year old nephew's birthday. He lives out of state and I am the queen of procrastination! This makes Overstock my place to shop. I don't have to stand in line to mail and it gets where I want the gift delivered with absolutely no problem. My nieces and nephews think I work at a library because they always get a book or two for all birthdays and holidays. Reading is the most important skill a child can have - but first you have to find the perfect book to get his/her interest. The Wimpy Boy series is exactly the book for my students and nephews. My nephew was so thrilled with his Wimpy Boy book - he ignored cake and ice cream to start reading it immediately.

The audio was great. The whole family joined in including my 8 year old as well as my husband. I would recommend this book to friends and family and would buy from this author again!!! Wheels on the bus anyone =)

As a great grandmother of two girls, ages 8 & 11, I was pleased to find this book as a Christmas gift. With a personal note to each, this book will be a part of their lives, and a reminder of Great Gram for years to come. The recipes are healthy, fun and easy to follow. The only negative I find is that the illustrations, although well done and fun, are a little young for probably ten and up. The recipes are great for them. Thanks to Paula for a great gift.
