Beehive Reader (Review)

The folks at All About Spelling sent me a free copy or the Beehive Reader 1 to review. Let me just say that Olivia LOVES this book. There are 156 pages, with engaging graphics. Each short story is a little more difficult than the previous story. Olivia picked up on that fact as well, but instead of being a bad thing, she got rather excited about it, almost like it was some suspenseful mystery novel.

Olivia's reading level is above the level of this particular reader. However, she's still enjoying reading it to her sister. The fact that it's a hardback book makes her feel like she's really flying through a major undertaking. The first time that she picked it up, she read the whole book at one sitting, and it took her about 15 minutes. It would have probably taken a lot less, but she felt the need to stop and do commentary on every.single.picture.

Lindsey is enjoying the book as well. At four she's just now starting to read short sentences. The beginning of the book gives her some challenge, but not discouragement. Here are a few sample pages for you to peep at.
