    Boom! I just ordered the Dr. Doolittle set

    My kids are really into Tarzan at the moment, thank you "Tarzan and Jane" on TV. So, I added all of the Jungle Book books to my cart too. Then, I paid attention to their titles. They're not ALL traditional Jungle Book, just one is. So, I ordered Mowgli and the Eskimo book.

    Yay!

I'm hoping these 18 sell fast enough that I can get permission to print the rest of them, but I have to prove their worth to my boss first!

    Thanks Tanya! It's really good to know that there could be more!

    I think he would love to read Dr. Doolittle especially. And who can't love a mischivious Tom Sawyer?

    They seem all about 30ish pages.

    It depends. If he doesn't mind pictures and understands that these are not his Literature selections for studying, as with his Lit Guides, but rather Spring Break readers to keep his reading sharp, he might find a welcome ease in reading them.

    When you receive them, you may be able to tell with certainty. If for some reason they are too easy or you think he will find them too young, you might ask him to read these to your youngest daughter. He could "practice" with you until he is fluent and then read to her. (That way you're givjng him good practice in fluency and inflection while not expecting her to have unrealistic amounts of patience.)

    Here is a sample:

    The Story of Doctor Dolittle, Book #6
    Chapter title "Home at Last"

    (first page of the chapter below -- spacing is much wider and pictures are plentiful)

    Doctor Doolittle and the animals headed for home. After many days at sea they finally spotted the Puddleby shore. Happy and excited, the animals jumped up and down. "I wonder if things have changed," Doctor Dolittle said. "Or perhaps things will be exactly the same!"

    I was wondering this too. We have just a few more chapters of Charlotte's Web left and we are definitely at the top of my boys comfort at this point. Our last book of the year is Homer Price and I hear that's supposed to be an easier level.

    Do you think these are too easy for him?

    I was thinking of Spring Break reading.

    Yes! I was thinking of you because you had requested an alternate SC Extended Lit set. Here you go! If Ligia is like my daughter, she will enjoy these. Those challenging names kerp them from feeling too young. And the illustrations are compelling. You might try with just a few and see what you think.

    Hmmm...I'm glad I logged in and saw these. This might be helpful for Ligia who is still at about 3rd grade level reading? Or would it be too babyish for her? Or maybe with my 8 year old who is still not reading independently. Thinking...hmmm.

    Good morning,

    We've only printed full sets for two of the our series, so we felt that at this time offering sets for some but not all the series would be confusing. We will however create a single set for all eighteen books across the four series.

    HTH!

    I would love if we could buy them all together, for a little “core” discount!

    Right now they are grouped by series, with all books in a given series available from a single webpage, but we could make a single set for those who want all 18 books. That will take a few days though!
    Thank you, that would be wonderful!
