Needed more practice readers? Here you go! 90 Books, all different authors and illustrators. Great variety. There are roughly 3000 characters in each book and they are illustrated simply alternating between black/white and color pages. I like them because it’s a reliable attainable goal to finish a book a day for my kids and it’s good for practice reading once you’re at this level.

You can also aim for doing half a book a day if you’re earlier on.

Some stories are cute, others heart warming, many funny, and some not so crazy about. You get the good with the bad but the majority of it is interesting enough for my kids to finish the books without complaining and there are a lot a lot a lot of great phrases and idioms in there for them to learn through context. Comparing it to 樂讀123, I would say this set is slightly harder so read these after Happy Reading 123. Book Review: 樂讀123 系列 44本 Happy Reading 123 - 44 Books.

There are three sets so you can buy one set at a time (yay). Each set is 30 books. Get one set and see how your kids like it and then buy the others if you see that you need more practice reading.

What I like about it:

  1. Large text! Yay!
  2. Text is spread apart line after line for easy on the eye reading.
  3. Text to picture ratio is 1-1 perfect for bridge.
  4. 3000 characters. Perfect length to not be intimidating for a first grader leveled reader.
  5. Colorful illustrations.
  6. This is crazy but I like how there are 90 different stories with all different authors to choose from daily for my kids to read. No lack of variety of characters and themes. Even illustrators are different.

All in all, you (our facebook group) wanted me to recommend some more easy bridge readers. Here you go! 90 of these plus 44 of the Happy Reading 123 Book Review: 樂讀123 系列 44本 Happy Reading 123 - 44 Books should satisfy your hunger. LOL. Remember to also couple in picture books with these for a break. Cheers.
