To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We love the Isadora Moon books in our house. My daughter (7YO) has only recently got into a good habit of reading and these larger print chapter books with scattered illustrations are meaty enough to help her grow whilst being easy enough to self guide through the story.
She is picking up lots of new vocabulary which is great, however I’d love to sit her down with Harriet Muncaster as the number of times we hear “but that’s not a word!” when she comes across something she doesn’t understand is hilarious. She won’t ever trust that the author might know words a little better.
Isadora Moon manages something exceptional by combining great story telling, aligning with relevant real world problems for kids, and helping to understand that different is a great thing. And all this is done in an exciting, engaging and funny way.
Despite my misgivings, ie. the storyline being weak and in some points a chore to read out loud, my 5 yr old is utterly enchanted by it. So, we will (most likely) be buying more Isadora Moon books as the most important end user gives it a thumbs up.
I bought the series of Isadora Books for my Granddaughter recently and she is enjoying reading them each night as the words and Chapters are simple which means she can read them herself which gives her confidence in her reading and she enjoys the story lines. Would definitely recommend these books.
