My quick notes: I’m relatively new into reading chapter books to my two young kids (7/4 y/o), and I came across this series with positive reviews. It tells the story of Alvin Ho, a second grader who’s afraid of everything. Having recently read my first “Wimpy Kid” book, I found these two to be similar in their delivery and tone. I will note, though, if you are reading to young kids, you will have to skip over occasional words / sentences. I found some of the words to be the kind I teach my kids not to use (nothing too strong, just beyond a 7 and 4 year old).
