Most things on Groupon take time so always be prepared. My 6year old can read most of these books. It comes with a how to of sorts for parents basically stating that you should always read with your child which is obvious. My 6year old is a pretty good beginning reader and a lot of the words in this book he has not been exposed to so it takes him some time. The sentence structure is fun for him and he gets likes reading. Don't buy it expecting your child to pick it up and read if you little reader does not already have a good reading base. Also, little readers can grow board of some of the beginning books.
