With the Dick and Jane stories, she does the initial reading and, surprising to me, loves the stories as simple as they are. In a week she has progressed through 3 of the Stage 1 booklets and is now reading compound words and "sounding out" new words. She commented that the illustrations are beautiful. Each night she chooses Dick and Jane over the other options that she has. These are the same stories I learned to read from 5 decades ago.
Seems good learning tools are timeless.
No worries about stereotyping from the stories I don't see these stories changing that. I purchased these for my niece who struggles with reading. These books have helped her to read faster and to be confident as she reads.
They are definitely a great starter point for reading beginners. I wouldn't buy these if you're looking for a book to entertain your child who already has reading down pat. There's not much to the story. However, for a child who is learning how to read, it is exciting. My niece loves them and like I said, it has made her more confident with reading other books.

It's perfect! No flash, no dazzle, no robots or cell phones.
Just everyday people in everyday situations with a picture of the activity on every page so the student can read the words and see the action. My hardcover copy is old and very worn by many little handsbut it's still the best on the market.

Seus in our home library and a weekly visit to the public library to keep me challenged. Once i found them here, i was ecstatic. They came new and intact. My son is now going on 6 yrs old and still loves them. If you know anything about repetition and strategy, these books are a winner for all age groups They come labeled for different stages as to how hard they are to read and how often they combine words. I would purchase any day again. This is how I learn to read decades ago, so i decided to purchase this book for my nephew and guess what happened.
