Everyone loves D-Bot Squad

"This book was AWESOME. It made me feel excited about reading."

Xavier, 6

"Compared to other books Xavier has read D-Bot Squad was much more involved – the boys were really caught up and we talking about the book, rather than just listening to the story."

Katrina, Xavier’s Mum

"It made me feel amazing about reading, because that’s the first whole chapter book I’ve ever read."

Olivia, 6

"I like the size of the words and it has punctuation."

Kye, 7

"It made me feel excited to see what happens next."

Adam, 6

"This is a fantastic book. Although the text is simple it is engaging. Short, sharp chapters to keep the reader involved. Using the elements of building and games to keep the reader engaged is perfect. The adjectives are so suitable for this age group. The whole concept it wonderful."

Glynis Neeves, Teacher, Early Stage 1 and Stage 1
