Summary and rating of 4.7
This series was first introduced to me in 2014.  It was one of the first books I reviewed and I have really enjoyed them.  I have read them to my students who have really enjoyed them.  The illustration, text and addition pop up words are really wonderful.  I highly recommend this book.
