The more Henry and Mudge books we read, the more my 5 yr old son loves them. There are good solid reading level 2 books, so he can read them to me out loud or to himself and discuss later. Today I really enjoyed watching him read to himself and smiling and laughing at certain parts when Im pretty sure he didnt know he was doing it. He loves secret decoder type stuff. Its great to see a new reader enjoying books as much as you do as well. So this is high on our list of favorites and we look forward to more Henry and Mudge books.
