Cute series for elementary age students in a diary format. Includes black and white drawings. Stories focus on this group of girls as they become friends, enjoy sleepovers and movies, deal with school projects and family issues, etc.
Books are written at a third to fourth grade reading level (according to the Accelerated Reader system) and are appropriate for kids as young as first grade all the way up to young tweens. I've been really pleased with this Branches line from Scholastic. It has appropriate content for my younger readers but the books are written at a level that allows them to grow as readers.
4 out of 5 stars for the series
