Love this program! Our son is excited to have earned his prize (as am I) - we'll pick it up soon. He has not only been reading to me to earn it, but I have been reading some stories to him at bedtime. It is music to my ears to hear him say "just one more chapter, Mommy, PLEASE????" How can I say no to THAT?
Review
I love how this encourages not only adults to read, but children as well. The importance of reading and using ones imagination need to still be cultivated in children.

The moving finger by AGATHA CHRISTIE.Third entry in the miss marple series.Fairly enjoyable read BUT if you have to choose go with the HERCULE POIROT books.They are MUCH BETTER
