The great part is that it's short and sweet but also satisfying enough for bedtime - for those nights when it's already past bedtime and you're in a bit of a rush to get the kids to sleep.
I truly believe that every child's collection should include at least one Dick and Jane book. They are a true classic (...) I honestly don't think they're the best for teaching to read. For an early reader? Yes. For a child who is just starting out I much prefer a book built on phonics rather than sight words and repetition. However, once your child learns to read phonetically they will feel so accomplished when they read each of the short Dick and Jane stories.
