Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy Reader for the Little Ones Reason for Reading: Ds read aloud to me as his reader. Arthur and his sister Violet are cleaning out their toys and decide to sell some of them in a tag sale but Arthur has a hard time deciding whether to sell his Honey Bear or not. I was never fond of this series as a child myself. Can't really say why, just that Arthur never appealed to me. But since we had this one on the shelf we used it as a reader. The reading level was just on par with ds's abilities but the story was on the immature side and I can't say he was much interested in it either. Not a bad story but certainly recommended for the youngest ages, 5/6 or so.
