3 Stories in 1 book, a great value. These stories were a great read for my kids in level K and level 1 Language Arts. Each story was short enough that my kids were able to finish them in 1 day.

I especially enjoyed going through these stories as the pictures are vintage bringing me back to books of my childhood. The stories were great and my kids enjoyed them.

My 6-year-old adored the first and last stories in this book. He couldn’t wait to find out the birthday surprise Baker Bill was making. The middle story was kind of ho-hum for him, but overall we really enjoyed the book. I’d highly recommend it for kids who are curious about what grown-ups do all day.

This book was very nostalgic to me. There are three short stories in the book. The drawings in the stories look vintage. One of the short stories covered going to the library. That brought back memories from my childhood of going to the library and having my own library card.

I read this book aloud with my kids 0-12 and all enjoyed it! (The baby slept, so I take that as a win too.) The three short stories were perfect for bedtime reads and are sweet stories that we will enjoy reading again.
