With this collection we now have the entire book series todate on CD. They are funny as ever. We listen to them over and over and over and over in the car. They have replaced radio listening. My niece is in the first grade and is reading close to a thrid grade level. Listening to the CDs promotes the book and her interest in reading. She listens and wants to read herself. On our way home from a girl scout camp aboutl, an hour and a half away. she pulled out her book and read to her scout buddies in the car. It was astounding. She became the book and all of the characters. She read the entire book in one sitting! The remaining Junie series and this CD collection are part of our summer reading. If you want to help your child read fluently get any set of books on CD. You will be surprised with the outcome.
