I was hoping this would be something our family would enjoy reading outloud. I don't think the stories worked well for that. I think it would be good for a young reader though. Note that in the first story the children enter a stranger's house alone without parental permission and eat a meal. Nothing wrong with the story at all. Another time another place. Just might be something to be aware of to remind of appropriate behavior with strangers.
Our third grader loved this book so much that she read it in less than two days - couldn't put it down!
