The Incredible Dash (The Incredible Steps Into Reading: Step 3) ($3.19)

AFTER BEING FORCED to live normal human lives, the Incredibles have the chance to rediscover their superhuman abilities. But will these superheroes learn to work together as a family to defeat evil? Find out in this action-packed Step 3 reader based on the hit film, The Incredibles.

“I’ve seen Step into Readings appeal to all ages. . . . The built-in levels and high-interest titles engage a variety of learners with different learning styles.”—Franky Murphy, second, fourth, and sixth grade teacher.

This book is classified as Step 3 from their Step Into Reading series. Step 3 means the kids can read it on their own!

Each page is fully colored and the texts were presented line by line so the kids can easily read them.

The book encourages reading aloud. It’s also a great practice for pronouncing each word correctly. Story-wise, it’s fun and the characters are lovable. Since The Incredibles is familar, The Incredible Dash easily held my kids’ attention too.

Penelope Crumb Finds Her Luck By Shawn K. Stout ($21.10)

In the third book in this hilarious, endearing series, all Penelope Crumb wants is to be someone’s “Favorite.” She’d thought she was her Grandpa Felix’s Favorite, and her mom’s Favorite, and her friend Patsy Cline’s Favorite, but she’s starting to realize that maybe she’s not. And it’s all The Bad Luck’s fault. So since Penelope’s a superb artist, she comes up with a plan—she’s going to be the boss of the mural her school is making at the Portwaller’s Blessed Home for the Aged, which will make her into everyone’s Favorite.  And maybe it’ll frighten The Bad Luck away. But things don’t quite go as planned there either. And when an old woman named Nila promises to help Penelope find her luck so everyone will like her again, things get even worse! In the end, Penelope finds out that friendships aren’t about luck—and that it doesn’t matter if you’re anyone’s Favorite when there are tons of people who love you. In a book that’s equal parts humor and heart, it’s clear to see why young readers will count Penelope as one of their Favorites.

This story is comical yet ends on a heartwarming note. It teaches the kids a lesson or two about friendship.

It’s a great read for those in primary school. The narrative is quite engaging!

The illustrations are beautiful! Although they’re in black and white, the drawings were able to show the quirky and endearing personality of the story’s heroine.

The Adventures Of Tintin The Seven Crystal Balls By Herge ($39.95)

The classic graphic novel. Seven explorers return from an expedition in the Andes, where they unearthed the tomb of an Incan priest. One by one, they fall into a coma. Can Tintin figure out what is causing the mysterious illness?


The Seven Crystal Balls is the thirteenth volume of The Adventures of Tintin, the comic series by Belgian cartoonist Hergé.

Tintin is an inquisitive reporter who is always trying to get to the bottom of mysteries. Along with his partner Snowy, they go around the globe to solve thrilling mysteries!

The comic art can be compared to most American comics, especially those that you can find on a newspaper.

A biographer said that this volume of Tintin is the most terrifying among the others, as he believed that Herge “produced a gripping tale that went further than any other in the direction of the supernatural.”

There’s also a timeline where you’ll get to know more about Tintin and his creator, Hergé!

More info about the art and the creator! Also, there’s a Tintin magazine that the Belgian children really loved as they get the chance to catch up on the latest Tintin adventure on a weekly basis.

Kids BookCase Club is consistent in providing interesting and age-appropriate books for my kids. They help develop the kids’ reading and comprehension and even helps with character development too. The books are really fun and engaging, the kids don’t even want to put them down until they’re done reading them. Also, the comic is quite interesting and even we adults were intrigued by it. The difficulty level of each book is a great idea too, as it will test your child’s reading abilities, or if you have readers from different age ranges. This is really a great subscription that lets us add new and good titles to our shelves every month!
