AAS Beehive Reader #2 (TOS Crew Review)

Remember when I reviewed the All About Spelling Beehive Reader?  My son's first question was, "do they have any more?" when he was done reading it.  Well, we were sent their second book before it was even available to the general public for purchase!  Oh, the excitement!!

First of all, the Beehive Reader will be renamed Cobweb the Cat, so look for it by that name, too.

Secondly, the book we just received is a slightly more advanced reading level book at level 2, and it is called What Am I?

Again, a great collection of short stories with great drawings, likable characters, and an elusive kind of charm that wraps kids up in the book like no other book this size seems to do.

Maybe it is because the book is comprised of shorter stories, so it isn't overwhelming...?
Maybe it is the delightful, pencil-style sketches throughout the book that make the stories come alive...?
Maybe it is having his first hard-back, non-Seuss book that he can actually read....
Whatever it is, the second book is as big a hit as the first!

You can currently obtain the first book on their website, but the second one, What Am I?, will not be available until after April 15th - it is currently busy with its debut at all the homeschool conventions happening right now across the country. {wink}  And I may have heard something about a series... {wink, wink}

**Update: This book is NOW AVAILABLE!  List price is $19.95, but it is on sale for $15.95 until April 26th!!

Incidentally, it looks like these books will fall under a sub-name: All About Reading.  The main curriculum is still All About Spelling.

*Disclaimer: The above-mentioned book was sent to me for FREE so that we could read it and review it.  An honest review was all that was promised, and no compensation has been provided.  This review is my own opinion.
