The format is accessible. They are small books, with a few sentences on one page and a cartoon picture with dialogue on the other side. Each book has an animal that provides comic relief in the form of thought bubbles in the cartoons.

My son was 8 and in 2nd grade last year and in Jan we started Boyhood and Beyond and I really like it. I think by the end of the book some of the topics will be beyond him, but so far so good.

Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013. If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!
