My Review:
My six year old daughter is starting to enjoy reading the "I Can" books independently.  This VeggieTales book is a fun one with three different stories of fun and adventure.  It is great that these books have been aligned with the common core standards so as parents we can follow up with questions that they will most likely here in their classroom.   Getting them more and more familiar with the terminology used in the classroom will help our children so even if you are not a fan of the Common Core you can find ways to pick and chose the material you use and this series is great because the morals in the stories are biblical.  
My son, a super hero fanatic also loves this book and he is proving to be very patient with this sister as she reads books to him.  :)  This mama is a very happy camper with this book and with my kids.  It sure is a win-win for all!  My daughter and son love the stories and I love the biblical lessons as well as the curriculum lining up for easy understanding on what skills to focus on such as identifying characters and finding key details from the story!  Make sure you pick up your copy on February 25th!  

Thank-you Zondervan for sending me a free copy of this book to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.
