My Product Rating

I gave First Little Readers (Level A) a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.  I really like this product, but I found the content to be more geared towards Preschool through Kindergarten.  The product is marketed through 2nd grade, but the material may be a bit too simplistic for the upper grades.
