Our children were previously in a school which used the AR program until we decided to homeschool this year. They never developed a love for reading, and our 4th grader especially hated to read, until we found this book. Now he cannot put it down! Finally! I also liked the idea of giving him a book with four short stories because it gave him a sense of achievement after each one.
