'This book is great! My 7 year old loved reading it! He loved it enough to keep reading it, even though it was above his reading level some. At first a page took like 10-15 mins to read. Because he loves the story he kept at it and now he reads multiple pages in the same amount of time. Really helped him excel because the book really kept his interest.'
