Is my child ready for this set?
"Read to me": Ages 5+ will enjoy having these books read to them either by Luka or a caregiver.
"Read by myself": The simple, limited text per page and the prevalence of common, repetitive language from daily life, makes this series a good choice for beginning readers ages 7+.
Option to pair with Luka:
Consider adding Luka, the reading robot, to your order.
Set Luka in front of a book, and it will read aloud any page your child turns to-- creating a unique, independent physical book reading experience even if your child isn't ready to read by herself. Click to read our founders' personal review of Luka here.
