These are smaller than the others I’ve gotten from Target, but they are still great. My kindergartener loves reading these to me.

They seem so simple but my daughter (just finishing kindergarten) and her friend love them. This is our second set. I like how the pictures are on the plain side and mostly black and white- less distracting to kids as they try to read.
